Low Carbon Oxford North (LCON) is a registered charity (Charity registration number:  1142169). Like many other charities, it is also a company limited by guarantee (Company number:  07542380). This means the Board members are charity trustees and company directors. This type of company has members but no shareholders. Our Memorandum and Articles of Association set out the structure and aims of LCON.

Our Objects are to conserve, improve and protect the physical and natural environment for the public benefit by promoting:

  • the prudent use and sharing of resources;
  • reduction of waste through re-use, reclamation, recycling, use of recycled products and use of surplus;
  • reduction in the consumption of fossil based fuels;
  • the use of low carbon means of transport;
  • reduction of carbon emissions from the growing, transporting, purchasing and preparing of food

with the aim of reducing the carbon footprint of North Oxford by 80% by the year 2050.

In addition, we aim to advance the education of the public in the protection, enhancement and rehabilitation of the environment and to promote the study and research in such subjects and dissemination of the results of such research and study to the public.

A board of trustees made up of elected and coopted members manage LCON’s work. We are always keen to hear from people who would like to help develop our work. Find out more about our current trustees here. If you would like to know more about the Board, email us: info[at]
