Mission Zero strategy

Climate and Environment Strategy  |  2021 – 2040

Read the strategy document

In 2021, the Isle of Wight Council has released their ‘Mission Zero Strategy’. This document will form a key part of creating a sustainable future for our island and, together with other strategies and plans in existence and coming forward in the next few years, in particular the Island Plan Core Strategy, it will support our valuable yet fragile environment and our status as a UNESCO Biosphere reserve. 

The Strategy and Action Plan are the result of extensive work by many, helped by valuable contributions from across our community by people who recognise that these documents are a key part of ensuring our island can be the home it should be and needs to be for our future generations. 

“It is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, ocean and land. Widespread and rapid changes in the atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere and biosphere have occurred.”

IPCC report, August 2021
