COP26 and our response to the climate emergency

Together For Our Planet logo

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

The climate change agreement in Paris in December 2015 committed to limit global temperature increases to 1.5°C. It recognised the need to achieve zero net global carbon emissions by the second half of this century to achieve this.

The UK recently hosted COP26, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties. The summit brought parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Read about our work to reduce and adapt to climate change and our work towards a sustainable Cambridge. We are working on a number of different projects across the city, three of which are showcased in this video about our Climate Change Strategy.

If you work with a local voluntary or community group, you can apply for a Sustainable City Grant to deliver projects that will help achieve the objectives of our Climate Change Strategy.

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.
