How our spatial footprint dictates our carbon footprint: the denser the greener
Government departments are currently preparing their submissions for the Treasury’s upcoming Spending Review. Here is Centre for Cities’ key research to help inform this work.
Researcher Guilherme Rodrigues analyses carbon emissions from across the capital to conclude that encouraging density will help cities reach net zero.
Switching to electric vehicles will help us on the road to net zero, but to reach our destination most of us will need to ditch cars entirely.
Cities are big carbon emitters, but their density means they can also play a big part in reaching net zero.
The UK has pledged to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This report sets out what needs to change if cities and large towns are to lead the way in helping the Government achieve this goal.
Explore the carbon footprint of your city or town to see how sectors contribute to total carbon emissions and how it compares to other places.
