What's the Plan?
Science Based Targets
In November 2018, Manchester City Council adopted new science based climate change targets, on behalf of the city. The targets were based on work by the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Manchester and Manchester Climate Change Agency. Further information is available here.
Zero Carbon Framework 2020-2038
In February 2019, Manchester Climate Change Board and Agency published a Draft Framework to set out a proposed approach for the city to meet its targets. The Draft Framework is scheduled to be considered by Manchester City Council at the 6th March 2019 meeting of the Neighborhoods and Environment Scrutiny Committee and the Executive Committee on 13th March. Papers will be available online here.
Work is now underway to develop a final Framework and Action Plan 2020-2022 by March 2020, and to put in place the resources the city will need for implementation.
