Name: Haringey Council
Haringey Council declared a climate emergency in 2019 with the bold ambition to become a net-zero borough by 2041. In March 2021 the cabinet unanimously approved the Haringey Climate Change Action Plan, mapping out the route to the 2041 net-zero target.
OnePlanet have supported Haringey to map out the connections between their Climate Change Action Plan and other key strategies. Together OnePlanet and Haringey have worked to customise the OnePlanet platform to ensure that carbon mitigation is embedded into all Council reports and decisions.

Haringey has a small climate change team to deliver an ambitious strategy and target. The team believe that the only way of achieving the target is by embedding carbon mitigation into all council strategies and reports and building capacity across the council to deliver the target.
Responding to the growing climate crisis can only be met through a whole government response. OnePlanet supported Haringey to develop a tool for embedding carbon into all Council reports.
