Net Zero 2050

Net Zero 2050

Welsh Government's target is for Wales to be Net Zero by 2050.  Net Zero emissions means removing an equal amount of CO2 from the atmosphere as we release into it.  Net Zero 2050 relates to the territorial emissions of Blaenau Gwent as a whole, which includes the carbon released by all organisations and people in Blaenau Gwent, including from housing, transport, businesses etc.

Where do Blaenau Gwent's territorial emissions come from?

We are working with our partners on a range of actions and strategies to reduce Blaenau Gwent's territorial emissions, including:

Blaenau Gwent Climate Assembly.  The Blaenau Gwent Climate Assembly in March 2021, brought together 44 residents of Blaenau Gwent who made five recommendations in response to the question 'how can we tackle climate change in Blaenau Gwent in a way that is fair and improves living standards for everyone?'

Blaenau Gwent Climate Mitigation Steering Group.  As part of the Blaenau Gwent Local Well-being Partnership, partners have established a group to co-ordinate action on our territorial emissions, including developing and delivering actions in response to the Blaenau Gwent Climate Assembly.
