From May 2024 – The project is funded and delivered by Cheltenham Borough Council.

2021- 2024 – For the first 3 years Cheltenham Zero was funded by Cheltenham Borough Council and delivered by local climate charity Vision21.

“We’re really proud of CheltenhamZero members and what we’ve collectively achieved in Cheltenham over the first 3 years of the partnership. We’re grateful for this opportunity to establish and deliver the initiative for CBC and excited to see what direction the project takes next as members take the next step on their Net Zero journey and their needs evolve. Vision 21 are looking forward to still being a part of that journey as an active member and supporter”
