Dulwich is a wonderful place to live and we want it to stay that way. Dulwich Going Greener (DGG) is a voluntary organisation that wants a greener and truly low-carbon Dulwich (SE21 & SE22) to become a reality. Our objectives are to:
- Reduce energy demand and improve energy efficiency in Dulwich homes, businesses, public buildings and transport
- Increase the uptake of renewable and low carbon technologies
- Contribute to wider initiatives to combat climate change, especially in London.
We aim to do this by:
- Raising awareness of climate change and opportunities for positive action
- Engaging with the local community and organisations to promote environmental awareness
- Advocating action on climate change in the wider London community
- Implementing projects to secure our objectives
- Using resources responsibly and sustainably.
We will measure success by
- Establishing Dulwich's carbon footprint and evaluating progress in reducing it
- Monitoring and evaluating changes in environmental values and actions in the local community
