This is just the beginning. Achieving net zero by 2030 is a huge challenge and we will need everyone in the borough to play their part. Many of the actions presented here that can achieve the greatest impact on reducing our carbon emissions are in the hands of the residents of Waltham Forest, the businesses and other public sector institutions. Tackling Climate and Environmental Emergencies will be a collective effort.  

Over the coming years, we will work hard to further develop the supporting advice, tools and finance for delivering this plan, including a detailed financial analysis for funding the climate actions necessary to reach net zero by 2030 and a resident engagement plan.
