Data Protection message
The purpose of this survey is to gain your feedback on the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap. 

Privacy Statement
This survey is voluntary and anonymous. Your IP address will not be recorded. The results of the survey will be used to inform the Government of Jersey of your views on the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap and inform any updates to the Roadmap before it is lodged with the States Assembly for debate. Summarised survey results will be posted on the Government’s website and published in a post-Consultation report.

1. What gender do you identify as? *

 

2. In which parish do you live, or do you live outside Jersey? *

 

3. How old are you? *

 

4. What is your place of birth? *

 

5. The draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap is a plan to reduce Jersey’s carbon emissions and set the Island on the path to net-zero emissions. How supportive are you of the need for a Carbon Neutral Roadmap for Jersey? *

 

6. Almost 200 countries across the world have signed up to the Paris Agreement on climate change, which aims to limit global rise in temperatures to 1.5 degrees. After 1.5 degrees, the impacts of climate change will get worse, faster.

The Carbon Neutral Roadmap commits Jersey to the Paris Agreement targets. In 2019, Jersey had reduced its emission by 36% compared to a 1990 baseline. The Roadmap aims to make this a 68% reduction by 2030, and a 78% reduction from the baseline by 2035. How supportive are you of this plan? *

 


Transport
Transport is our largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for about 44%. To become net-zero by 2050 we need to phase out the use of almost all petrol and diesel vehicles from the Island’s roads. The draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap policies aim to speed up the adoption of electric vehicles in Jersey. This includes policies to:
  • Subsidise the cost of an electric vehicle
  • Incentivise people to scrap old polluting vehicles
  • Phase out petrol and diesel vehicles from 2030
  • Support people to walk, cycle or take the bus
The questions in this section ask you to think about how you might travel differently.

7. Looking at the following options, which would be most likely to encourage you to buy an electric vehicle when you next change your car? [rank 1-5]

 

8. What else would make you more likely to switch to an electric vehicle when you next change your car? If you already own an electric vehicle, please move to question 9.

 

9. To what extent do you agree that a financial incentive should be provided to encourage the owners of the most-polluting vehicles to scrap their vehicles? *

 

10. To what extent do you agree that a financial incentive should be provided to encourage people to buy electric vehicles? *

 

11. To what extent do you agree that any financial incentive should be targeted to provide more support to those on lower incomes? *

 

12. In Jersey, a car often has a useful life for over 15 years. To meet our targets, we need to stop petrol and diesel vehicles coming into the island well in advance of 2050. The manufacture and sale of petrol and diesel vehicles will be banned by the UK from 2030 and the EU from 2035. Car manufacturers know these dates and are increasingly switching to produce more electric vehicles. The draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap suggests that the importation, registration and sale of most petrol and diesel cars and small vans will end in 2030. How supportive are you of this move? *

 

13. Do you have anything else to say about the transport-related actions in the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap?

 


Heating
Decarbonising heating will mean moving away from using oil, gas or coal for heating homes and businesses. The draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap provides policies to help householders and businesses to make this change. The questions in this section ask you to think about how we might heat homes and businesses differently.

14. To what extent do you agree that a financial incentive should be provided to encourage people to change their heating systems? *

 

15. There are estimated to be over 20,000 fossil fuel boilers currently in Jersey. Boilers have a useful life of over 10 to 15 years. To meet our net-zero targets we need to stop new fossil fuel boilers being installed well before 2050. The draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap suggests that new oil, gas and coal boilers will not be installed in any property after 1 January 2026, although existing boilers can still be retained and repaired until they need to be replaced. How supportive are you of this policy? *

 

16. Energy Performance Certificates tell you how energy efficient a building is and give it a rating. They are already widely used across the EU and in the UK. The draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap suggests making both domestic and commercial Energy Performance Certificates mandatory at the point of sale and rental by the end of 2024. How supportive are you of this policy? *

 

17. Are there any other heating-related actions missing from the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap?

 

18. Do you have any other feedback on the heating policies in the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap?

 


Climate conversation
We want to keep the climate conversation going and hear any other ideas...

19. The draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap suggests developing and delivering an education and engagement programme to help Islanders reduce their OFF-Island (scope 3) emissions. Help us understand which topics we should look at first by ranking them, based on what you’d like to know more about… [Please rank from 1-8]

 

20. Are there any further actions that you think should be included in the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap and the policies?

 

21. Do you have any other comments on the draft Carbon Neutral Roadmap?
