About the consultation

In 2019, the States Assembly declared a climate emergency. They asked for the Government of Jersey to write a Carbon Neutral Strategy. The Strategy asked for a Citizens' Assembly on Climate Change and a long-term climate action plan to be produced for consideration by the States Assembly. The Carbon Neutral Roadmap is the name given to the long-term climate action plan.

In June 2021, the Citizens' Assembly published their recommendations for how Jersey could best become carbon neutral by 2030, and following that the Minister for the Environment called an in committee debate for politicians to consider the suggestions.

The Government of Jersey released its Preferred Strategy for tackling the climate emergency on 2 November 2021, setting out position statements that provide the basis for the detailed plans and policies within the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap, which has now been released for consultation.
