About the Climate Change Task Force

The Climate Change Task Force will build on progress already made in reducing our carbon footprint, and help us introduce initiatives to improve residents' quality of life while helping tackle climate change.

It will work with residents, staff and organisations such as Extinction Rebellion and Divest Enfield, to deliver its aims and look at areas such as:

  • physical supply chain
  • council operations and buildings
  • staff
  • residents
  • landscape
  • commercial and community tenants
  • investing in and building renewable energy

This will also help us prepare a new Sustainable Enfield Plan.
