BioRegional name Lib Dem Sutton in London as "UK's most ambitious green borough"

January 14, 2009 12:00 PM

BioRegional recently named the London Borough of Sutton as the first borough in the country to have developed an ambitious and achievable plan to become a 'One Planet Borough' - living within its fair share of the Earth's resources.

BioRegional has calculated that if everyone in the world used the Earth's resources at the same rate as Sutton residents, we would need three planets to support us.

Its global One Planet Living initiative, based on ten key sustainability principles and which the council has now signed up to, aims to change that - working in partnership with local people.

Lib Dem Sutton Council will now work with residents, businesses and other organisations to achieve the targets in its Sustainability Action Plan which include reducing the impact of energy, waste and water and using sustainable materials. The plan will also be annually reviewed to monitor the Council's progress in meeting its targets.
