Join with other employers, organisations and councils in our District determined to work together to deliver an urgent response to the climate emergency. Winchester District is currently a backmarker on the road to zero carbon, a challenge to our reputation as one of the country’s most desirable places to live and work. We can do better!

Good reasons to endorse the pledge

  • support the climate emergency declared by City and County Councils
  • respond to unprecedented public concern about climate change
  • clean up our legacy for younger generations
  • respect the moral imperative of climate justice

We pledge to work with other employers, organisations and councils to ensure that Winchester becomes one of the first districts to achieve a net-zero carbon footprint.

This is an initiative of Winchester Action on Climate Change, seeking to build a coalition of organisations willing to work together towards our vision of a net-zero carbon local economy.
