Councillor Jill Whitehead’s statement on 2015-16 One Planet Sutton progress



Sutton Council has released its latest One Planet Sutton progress report. The report sets out the progress on the 32 priority targets the council is making to become a One Planet borough by 2025. Sutton has been a One Planet Borough since 2009.

Councillor Jill Whitehead, Chair of the Environment and Neighbourhoods Committee at Sutton Council, said:

“One Planet Sutton is about creating a borough where everyone can lead happy and healthy lives. Adopting more sustainable lifestyles helps save money and also reduces our dependence on natural resources. We set ourselves 32 ambitious priority targets to help us achieve our aim of becoming a One Planet borough.”

“With the help of residents and partners we have made good progress towards the targets. Our recent notable achievements include reducing the council’s CO2 emissions, using less water and improving the condition of the River Wandle.”

“We have made good progress, but there is still more to do to achieve all our targets.  We are not resting on our laurels and have plans in place to meet these ambitious targets. I encourage residents to download and read a copy of our report to learn more.”
