Sustainable Hertfordshire Strategy, Hertfordshire County Council

When Hertfordshire County Council declared a climate emergency, we led the development of its ambitious strategy for achieving net zero – aligned to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Our strategy shows how we will lead in the way we behave as a council, enable our providers to respond to the climate challenge and inspire the businesses and residents of Hertfordshire to make their own contribution to the climate challenge we all face.

Specialists from across WSP advised on the strategy, including:

Carbon Modelling
Biodiversity Net Gain
Natural Capital
Climate Resilience
Waste and Resources
Engaging closely with senior leaders was key to meeting the tight deadline and developing a robust strategy. By presenting at the council’s forum for leaders we gained early feedback on the initial ambitions and generated real enthusiasm for the project.
