For hundreds of years, Portsmouth has seen many battles but now we face a new threat. The future of Portsmouth and the well-being of generations to come are now in danger because of our changing climate. We want Portsmouth to be greener, healthier, and fairer for everyone. That’s why we declared a climate emergency in 2019. In doing so we set ambitious targets to make our council operations ‘net zero’ by 2030, and we will support our city to be on the same journey.

Achieving net zero means removing the same amount of greenhouse gasses from our air that we release.

Be inspired by the actions already being taken by our communities, businesses, and the council to reach this target and help secure Portsmouth’s future. Discover more about our target, emissions data, and the efforts that both we and our city partners are making to reduce emissions and adapt to our changing climate.
