Havering Youth Climate Change Summit Survey

Havering Council is committed to tackling climate change and plans to be Net Carbon Neutral no later than 2040.

Here are some interesting environmental facts about your borough:

  • Last year 47 of our 88 schools were accredited with STARS (sustainable travel, active responsible and safe) status. In other words, they were recognised for reducing the use of car travel on the school run.
  • The Bikeability scheme offers free cycle training to Havering residents.  Bicycles can be hired at the Thames Chase Centre for all to use around the grounds, including accessible bicycles.
  • Hornchurch and Elm Park Library both have solar panels on their roof to generate electricity, and Elm Park library even has a green living roof.
  • 16 of our parks have been awarded Green Flag Status in recognition of their excellence and the essential involvement of our community with the Friends of Parks groups
  • We’re planting 1000 trees to commemorate those who lost their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic which will also help the environment
  • Havering was the first London borough to use Gas-to-Liquid fuel to power the Council’s bus fleet
  • Residents can get free training to help them reduce food waste through the Love Food Hate Waste campaign
  • The Mayor’s car has been replaced with a battery electric vehicle

We would like to hear what you think about environmental issues and what we could do to help tackle climate change.
