Motions on notice 5 October 2020 – Carbon targets

Meeting: 05/10/2020 - Council (Item 42)

Carbon targets

Proposed by Cllr Gant, seconded by Cllr Wade

Liberal Democrat member motion

 

This Council notes that in January 2019 Oxford City Council declared a climate emergency and committed to making the council’s own activities net-zero carbon as soon as possible.

Council therefore asks the Executive Director for Development to submit a report to Cabinet setting out proposals as below:

·       Starting immediately, ensuring that all new council-owned public buildings will be carbon neutral throughout their entire lifespan (with Oxfordshire-based carbon offsetting to capture any technically unavoidable performance gap).

 

·       As far as is it is possible to do so legally, to bind developers, or work with procured developers, to ensure that all residential and commercial developments on council-owned disposed land are carbon neutral throughout their entire life-span (with developers funding Oxfordshire-based carbon offsetting to capture any technically unavoidable performance gap).
