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.
