In July 2021, we met with Jack Hemingway, Deputy Leader of Wakefield District Council and Climate Change portfolio holder, to discuss the council and the district’s progress towards their 2030 net zero target. The conversation took place online, hence the format. It is clear that there is a lot happening and there is a lot more still to be done. There is always pressure to shift the target date back in the interests of realism – we are pleased to hear the commitment to 2030: always better to overshoot a near target than a distant one!
