The Croydon Climate Crisis Commission, which will kick-start the borough’s move to be carbon neutral by 2030, launched on 12 March at Croydon College. The Commission has been started by Croydon Council, but will be fully independent.
Croydon’s ambition to become London’s greenest borough took another step forward as the independent Croydon Climate Crisis Commission held its first meeting.
Building on the Citizen’s Assembly on Climate Change, the commission was created to help the council achieve its aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2030 and help address the climate and ecological emergency the world faces
Join us at Croydon College for the launch of the Croydon Climate Crisis Commission.
Over the next 10 years the Borough of Croydon aims to lead the way in tackling the climate emergency. This Commission, with representation from across the Croydon community, its key institutions, and technical experts, will help forge ambitious and fair action to 'decarbonise' the local economy.
Miatta Fahnbulleh, chief executive of the New Economics Foundation, has been announced as the first chair of the Climate Crisis Commission to help deliver a sustainable Croydon. The independent body has been set up to tackle the climate and ecological emergency and will draw on findings of a new citizens’ assembly on ways to lower the borough’s carbon footprint.
