Sustainability

Our goals for Wandsworth

The council is committed to making Wandsworth:

"a community of global citizens living within environmental limits in an attractive high quality local environment". 

We have long-term ambitions for a more sustainable future. These are:

  • Demonstrating leadership on sustainability in partnership with local communities
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions to slow down climate change and reduce reliance on fossil fuels
  • Preparing for and adapting to the unavoidable effects of climate change
  • Tackling consumption of resources, energy and pollution; and
  • A cleaner, greener, healthier and safer borough that does not compromise the wellbeing of future generations

Our 2010 Environmental Ambition Statement sets out the council's aims in full.
