Essex County Council set up the Essex Climate Action Commission to advise on Essex’s response to climate change. The commission published its report ‘Net-Zero: Making Essex Carbon Neutral’ in July 2021, and this set out a comprehensive plan to:

  • reduce the county’s greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050, in line with UK statutory commitments
  • make Essex more resilient to climate impacts such a flooding, water shortages and overheating

The recommendations in this report form a call to action for everyone and every organisation in Essex. We know we have a critical role to play and are working with partners to deliver a programme of action to address the climate and nature emergencies.
