Warrington Council

Warrington Borough Council wants to create the UK’s first carbon neutral town.

Total invested


Warrington council has an ambitious target to become the UK’s first carbon neutral town, and has a strong track record as one of the leading councils in the UK for taking climate action. It launched its Climate Change Strategy back in 2007 - a whole year before the UK's National Strategy was launched - and declared a Climate Emergency in 2019.

The council has already made significant investments in green energy development, halving its carbon emissions since 2009. But it wants to go further, to become an exemplar green town, blazing a trail for others to follow. This investment enabled anyone to get involved in their plans.
