Tackling climate emergency: Public asked for their thoughts

A survey on the drive to make Swansea net zero carbon is asking residents: What actions should your council make top priority?

Results will help the council make Swansea net zero carbon city by 2050.

Council joint deputy leader Andrea Lewis said: "Our survey continues our conversation with others as we continue to develop a strategic city-wide approach to achieving a net zero Swansea.

"It's aimed at all residents of all ages and organisations of all types. The results will help us prioritise our actions as we help the city address this era-defining crisis.

"I encourage people and organisations right around Swansea to take the survey; the short amount of time they take on this will help us invest our efforts in their futures."

The council is working with key partners on climate change and is inspiring others to join them in making a pledge as part of city-wide action.

Positive action already being taken by the council includes featuring green infrastructure in new developments, especially nature-based solutions that capture carbon.

Among other measures, it's upgrading its fleet of electric vehicles, installing EV charging points for local motorists and focusing more pension funds on sustainable investment.

Survey closing date: Dec 20.
