Inspired by the principles of One Planet Communities, our commitment includes:
Making buildings more energy efficient and delivering all energy with renewable technologies.
Reducing waste, reusing where possible, and ultimately sending zero waste to landfill.
Encouraging low carbon modes of transport to reduce emissions, reducing the need to travel.
Using sustainable healthy products, with low embodied energy, sourced locally, made from renewable or waste resources.
Choosing low impact, local, seasonal and organic diets and reducing food waste.
Using water more efficiently in buildings and in the products we buy; tackling local flooding and water course pollution.
Protecting and restoring biodiversity and natural habitats through appropriate land use and integration into the built environment.
Reviving local identity and wisdom; supporting and participating in the arts.
Creating bioregional economies that support fair employment, inclusive communities and international fair trade.
Encouraging active, sociable, meaningful lives to promote good health and well-being.
