Woking Borough Council’s action on climate change is the best in Surrey according to Climate Emergency UK (CEUK) which assesses all councils on their progress towards net zero.
Climate Emergency UK uses scorecard questions which are created from nine months of research and consultation with over 80 organisations and experts within the climate sector. The Council Climate Action Scorecards are an assessment of all UK councils’ climate action since 2019 and their response to reducing emissions and tackling the climate emergency.
Looking at factors such as transport, biodiversity, waste reduction and building heating gave Woking an overall score of 34% on the CEUK scorecard system.
The external assessment is encouraging and implies that Woking’s green plan is heading in the right direction.
