Climate change and sustainability

Tackling climate change is one of our key policy priorities – we declared a climate emergency in February 2019.

We are proud to have been declared a Fairtrade city, and we adopted a Sustainable Food Policy Statement [PDF, 162KB] in 2018.

We provide funding for environmental projects through the Sustainable City fund to complement our own work to reduce and adapt to climate change.

We’re also working to reverse the decline in biodiversity in and around Cambridge, to help our work to tackle climate change. We passed a motion to declare a biodiversity emergency in May 2019.
