Haringey's Net Zero Carbon Target for 2041

Haringey Council declared a Climate Emergency in March 2019 and has the ambition to become a Net Zero Carbon Borough by 2041 to reduce the impact of climate change on our world and daily lives. Most of the borough’s carbon emissions are not in the Council’s control. This means we need to work together as a borough, bringing together the community and businesses to collectively reduce emissions.

Haringey's Climate Change Action Plan sets out how we will reduce the Council’s emissions to net zero carbon by 2027, and the borough’s emissions to net zero carbon by 2041. This will include changing our travel habits, generating green energy and retrofitting our buildings (i.e. to upgrade our buildings by making them more energy efficient). The action plan shows that we cannot do this alone as a Council, and need our residents and businesses to help us.

Climate Change

Climate change is already impacting our daily lives, and the extreme weather is projected to become more severe. It disproportionally affects those least able to bear it and with the least responsibility for causing it. Extreme weather events include: heavy rainfall, storms, droughts, heatwaves. Longer term, we are facing rising sea levels, permafrost melting in the Arctics and the loss of productive land. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has warned of the significant, wide-ranging impacts we if don’t act now.
