* 7. SUSTAINABLE TRANSPORT PLEDGES
In Dacorum, transport is responsible for over 40% of the borough’s greenhouse gas emissions.

Making changes to the way we travel will be crucial for meeting our net-zero goal. This will involve significantly reducing car use, increasing active travel (such as walking and cycling) and potentially eliminating some journeys altogether.

Fly less often and offset when you do
