The Commission have joined forces with the Living Lab department at the University to set up a Surrey Active Travel Project.
The objective is to identify behavioural triggerds and barriers that have affected the take up of active travel in order to produce outcomes
that can help steer effective and coherent future policy and development .

The Baseline Document has been produced by the University of Surrey on behalf of Surrey Climate Commission and shows where the current carbon impact is in Surrey. This report builds on Surrey County Councils Greener Strategy, published last year and provides detail and granularity in particular areas, such as transport and domestic heating. We also have addressed the very significant area of consumption-based emissions.
"The Surrey Climate Commission fills a crucial gap between national and local efforts to accelerate the scale and pace of action to address climate change."
