Why we're acting on climate change

The County Council has a responsibility to its residents to take meaningful action to reduce carbon emissions, alongside preparing Hampshire for the impacts of a changing climate.

These actions will both safeguard, strengthen and enhance not only the services we deliver but also Hampshire’s environment, economic prosperity and residents’ health and wellbeing.

The Hampshire 2050 Commission of Inquiry recognised our changing climate as the biggest long-term issue facing Hampshire. Action on climate change needs to be embedded into everything we do - the way we deliver our services for residents, make decisions and deliver policy in shaping a healthy and prosperous future in Hampshire.
