Climate Change Delivery and Action Plan

The Council has a key role to play in contributing to Manchester: A Certain Future (MACF) and act as a catalyst for change.

In 2010, we set out our commitments in the Climate Change Delivery Plan, which fell into two main categories:

  • internal - reducing our own CO2 emissions and becoming a low-carbon authority by 41% by 2020 from a 2009/10 baseline; and
  • external - providing leadership and influence to the city and its partners and leading on the development of key projects and programmes, where we are best placed to do so.

Since 2010 we have also implemented a series of shorter term plans designed to establish a robust platform and early momentum from which further activity could be delivered, and the ambitious commitments to 2020 realised.

View our current Climate Change Action Plan 2016/20 - themes include building retrofit, energy generation, green infrastructure and biodiversity, sustainable consumption and production, environmental education, carbon literacy training and sustainable transport.
