Carbon Neutral By 2030 – A Message from Rachel Berger, Chair of CFB in 2020

In 2009 we launched our Carbon Neutral 2050 Declaration and asked people in our town and community area to sign up to this goal, thereby making a personal commitment, and by March 2020 1,154 people had signed.

Times have changed; insufficient action by governments, businesses and ourselves have meant that time is running out and we now need to seek to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030 to avert climate breakdown, as stated in our Town Council’s (and many others) Declaration of a Climate Emergency. We hope that on reading this, as a member of CFB or a supporter of our work, you will want to show your commitment by signing up to this new, and much more urgent goal. We are extremely grateful to Sarah Clarke (Mawdsley) and Jeff Pigott, who were the original designers, for redesigning our logos and header to reflect our more ambitious carbon neutral by 2030 target. Thank you in hope.
