“In February 2019 we acknowledged the climate emergency and set our goal to make Wiltshire carbon neutral by 2030.

“We know many communities and businesses in Wiltshire are already taking some great steps to help tackle climate change, but there is more that we all need to do to create an even greater impact.

“We have launched the #WiltsCanDoThis campaign to inspire people with suggestions of things they can do towards supporting the climate, and there are plenty of small actions people can take in their everyday lives that can all contribute to helping our county to become carbon neutral.

“We would like everyone to make a commitment to supporting climate change in Wiltshire and we can all play our part – #WiltsCanDoThis.”
