Working together towards



Overcoming the growing threat of Climate Change will
require decisive action across society. While this will pose
significant challenges for all of us it will also provide
exciting opportunities to make positive changes.

What is Net Zero?

Recognising the scale of the climate emergency, Rugby Borough Council has committed to reducing the Council's CO2 emissions to net zero by 2030. The council has also committed to provide community leadership to help reduce CO2 emissions towards net zero across the borough.

Net zero or carbon neutral means that the total amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emitted is balanced out (or offset) by the carbon that is removed from the atmosphere.
