ABOUT US

Zero Carbon Harrogate (ZCH) brings together a group of residents from the Harrogate District from many walks of life in order to support the development of a low carbon sustainable economy, which will improve the quality of life for Harrogate District residents.

ZCH is bringing together local businesses, community groups, individuals and politicians to work collaboratively in order to transform our district and become one of the first low carbon economies in the UK.

Our Aims

• Raise awareness of the need to transition to a low carbon sustainable economy and the means by which it can viably be achieved.

• Maintain or raise the standard of living, using a wide range of criteria (wider than economic growth).

• Assist in promoting or developing projects that “power down” our energy demand by around 60% with major savings in building heating and transport.

• Assist in promoting or developing projects that “power up” the use of renewable energy from a variety of sources and carbon neutral energy produced without using fossil fuels. Providing clean, local, secure energy for our district.

• Assist or develop strategies to bring about behavioural change to reduce personal carbon footprints through diet, product and service consumption, transport and domestic energy use.

• Encourage the creation of local “green” jobs in our district.

• Promote carbon capture by increased afforestation and peatland restoration.

• Campaign for the implementation of low carbon sustainable strategies with local and national government as necessary.

ZCH will initially be working on individual carbon reduction and renewable energy generation projects and engaging support in all sectors of the local economy and community, whilst showcasing local success stories where carbon emissions have significantly been reduced.

We aim to achieve our objectives, by engaging, educating and collaborating with the Harrogate community, which will also improve the quality of life for Harrogate District residents.
