Responding to the climate emergency

The States Assembly have agreed that a climate emergency exists and is likely to have profound effects in Jersey. 

In response to the climate emergency, the States Assembly voted unanimously to approve the amended Carbon Neutral Strategy. The carbon neutral strategy responds to the requirement from the States Assembly to bring forward a plan to aim to be carbon neutral by 2030. The carbon neutral strategy builds on the progress made through the Pathway 2050: an Energy Plan for Jersey and sets out a strategic framework of principles and a central planning scenario.

In July 2019 the Council of Ministers published an initial report on tackling the climate emergency in Jersey which outlined the case for the direct and indirect benefits of Jersey pursuing a carbon neutral future.

The States Assembly has also voted to approve the amended Sustainable Transport Policy. Transport accounts for 51% of Jersey's on island carbon emissions so will have an impact on our aim to be carbon neutral.

Watch a briefing to learn more

You're invited to watch a briefing on our carbon neutral strategy and sustainable transport policy to learn more about what the States Assembly has agreed to deliver.

 

Help Jersey to become carbon neutral by 2030

For Jersey to reach carbon neutrality we all need to work together. We're developing a plan which will outline how we'll aim to be carbon neutral by 2030.  We'll be talking to lots of people, businesses and organisations to help us to create this plan.

What you can do at home

In the meantime, check our energy saving advice for simple ways to save energy and reduce your carbon footprint.

You can also have a Home Energy Audit carried out on your home to tell you how to make your home more energy efficient.

What you can do at work

Find out how your business can save energy and reduce its carbon footprint and sign up to the eco active business network for more information and support. See the eco active business energy monitoring spreadsheet to identify what energy your business uses and by extension the associated carbon emissions.

Opportunities to have your say will be coming soon. You can email the Climate Emergency team to be kept informed about these opportunities. 

We'll also post any updates on social media:
