Winchester District needs to cut roughly 200 thousand tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions over the next 4 years (or the equivalent in other greenhouse gases, such as methane) to meet our 2015 target. WinACC wants to see much more renewable energy generation in Winchester District to help reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Figures collected by the environmental group Winchester Action on Climate Change (WinACC) suggest that the vast majority of people in Winchester District are convinced that climate change is happening and that preventing global warming is down to national and local politicians as well as individuals.

Winchester district’s carbon footprint has gone down a little in recent years, but not enough to prevent the worst effects of climate change.
