Deal Town Council has committed to become net-zero in its operations by 2025.
What this means is that by 2025 the Town Council will minimise it's Greenhouse Gas Emissions and balance those remaining emissions to effectively be nothing.
As part of this commitment, Councillors and Officers, along with Councillors and Officers from Walmer Parish Council, attended training on carbon auditing and mapping the journey to net zero. Following this carbon literacy training an initial Roadmap has been produced outlining actions the Council needs to take to achieve its ambition.
The next step in the process is to assess the action list, prioritise the actions, ascribe numeric emissions values in order to establish an accurate Roadmap that will enable the Council to monitor its progress to reach its objective of net zero emissions by 2025 with minimal offsetting.
