The Zero Carbon Group was set up by SSB to find practical ways of reducing our carbon footprint as individuals and as a community. The group is exploring ways of working differently to reach a wider audience.

Prompted by SSB, South Brent Parish Council declared an ‘Climate and Ecological Emergency’ on 20 May 2019 and will work with the SSB ‘Zero Carbon South Brent’ sub-group to pursue further local measures/projects that help to reduce the carbon footprint of the parish. This will move the parish towards the fulfilment of some of the aims in the ‘Parish Plan 2016+’. Refer to the plan on the Parish Council website for more detail, but the overall aims in this respect were that

“The community will take steps to sustain itself, socially and economically and with opportunities for all who wish to make their lives here. This will include affordable and environmentally friendly homes to enable families and individuals with low to moderate incomes to continue to live and work within South Brent. It is also about our broader impact on the environment, which in turn impacts on us, economically and socially. We will play our part in the global efforts to mitigate climate change and resource scarcity, in ways that are compatible with the need to maintain and improve the quality of life in the community for all. We will therefore include locally produced energy solutions such as hydro, wind and other renewables, encourage more domestic recycling and in so doing strengthening the local community and protecting the long term economic, social and environmental health of the village.” and “Work to assess the Parish’s carbon footprint and identify and incentivise a programme to reduce it to an agreed series of targets compatible with UK goals and the need to achieve sustainability across the community.”
