Our city’s shared plan to tackle climate change

Manchester is a city committed to action on climate change. In 2009 residents and businesses came together to produce the city's first ever climate change strategy, Manchester: A Certain Future. In January 2016, just one month after the Paris Agreement, we committed to 'become a zero carbon city by 2050'.

On this website you can find out about our plan for becoming zero carbon, how we are doing, and how you can get involved.

In the environmental movement, every time you lose a battle it's for good, but our victories always seem to be temporary and we keep fighting them over and over again.
