Southwark Council

Southwark Council is taking local climate action to make neighbourhoods greener and drive down carbon emissions.

Total investment target


Southwark Council is taking urgent action to clean up its air and enhance its natural environment. It has an ambitious strategy and action plan to transform Southwark into a carbon neutral borough by 2030. Its vision aims to reshape the borough into a better place for everyone, delivering improvements in health, raising the standard of homes, creating good green jobs and strengthening its communities.

The council has already cut their emissions since the launch of their climate action plan in 2021, and delivered a number of climate projects - from an innovative heat pump programme for council housing estates, through to replacing over 8,000 light bulbs with LEDs. Now it wants to further accelerate their work, and Southwark Green Investment is a chance for everyone to get involved. The council wants to raise £6m by 2030 through a series of investments, to fund a range of projects from their climate programme.

We're taking urgent action in Southwark to tackle the climate emergency – but we know the scale of the challenge means we can't do it alone. Southwark Green Investment is your chance to join us as we transform the borough.

Every investment, from as little as £5, will not only play its part in helping us hit our ambitious net-zero emissions target, but it will also help us to create a greener, fairer and safer borough.
