We write to you after another busy fortnight in West Berkshire which is perhaps reflected in the diverse range of topics we will cover in this weeknote.
As many of you will know, West Berkshire Council declared a Climate Emergency back in 2019 and following a series of engagement exercises and our first ever Climate Conference, we published our Environment Strategy in July last year.

The infographic below gives details of some of the projects we have launched and investment we have made to help make this ambition a reality, including our award winning Climate Bond, which was the first of its kind in the UK, and our electric vehicle charging point scheme.
