Here in Adur and Worthing we are committed to tackling climate change and protecting our natural environment. The Councils declared a climate emergency in 2019 and we are committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2030.
Recognising that by working together we can have a far greater impact, SustainableAW is a shared plan between community, business partners and the Councils to create a more sustainable future for our region.
A shared vision
We plan to address some of the most pressing environmental challenges facing all of us, including climate change, the loss of natural habitats, unnecessary waste and poor air quality. Our aim is to ensure everyone in our community is able to enjoy green spaces and access affordable, clean energy and transport.
In support of this vision, SustainableAW focuses on ten key areas:
- Reducing carbon emissions
- Waste Reduction
- Land use and planning
- Climate resilience
- Shared leadership
How we're working together with you
In March 2020, we worked in partnership with Worthing Climate Action Network and Transition Town to hold the Zero 2030 Community Climate Conference. For the resources from the Climate Conference see: Zero 2030 on the Futurelogic website.
During 2020 the Climate Assembly brought together a representative group of local residents to discuss how we can collectively tackle climate change while helping our community to thrive. Find out more about the Adur & Worthing Climate Assembly.
Our online magazine shares stories about some of the work being done throughout our community to improve sustainability across Adur and Worthing: SustainableAW online magazine.
