One Planet Cardiff is a major new initiative proposing a wide range of ambitious actions that will begin to form the basis of a delivery plan to achieve Carbon Neutrality in the Welsh capital. It aims to do this in a way that supports new green economies and greater social wellbeing in the city with an emphasis on the city’s transport infrastructure.
The draft One Planet Cardiff Strategy sets out the ambition to be a One Planet Cardiff (OPC) working with city wide partners to develop a road map and action plan for a Carbon Neutral City by 2030 as a wide-ranging response to climate change.
The initiative is fully supported by electrica.live who will be working closely with groups and individuals to deliver events in lively global city centres and locations, to showcase the latest developments in the world’s ever-changing electric infrastructure and lifestyle, communicating directly with the public, businesses and politicians, promoting debate around the future of emobility
Central to One Planet Cardiff is inner city infrastructure with an overall aim to minimise the impact of vehicle emissions and air quality, replacing as many single user, fossil fuelled trips as possible with sustainable low carbon modes of travel, whilst ensuring that they don’t simply migrate problems elsewhere.
In line with the ongoing shift in the way that people across the globe are working and living in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the initiative will look to preserve some of the key environmental gains made and shape recovery with carbon neutrality at the core. Our Strategy will aim to help embed climate resilience across Cardiff, with equity, wellbeing, sustainability and prosperous green growth for all at its core.
