Manchester Climate Change Partnership

Manchester Climate Change Partnership was established in 2018 and brings together organisations from across the city’s public, private, community, faith, health, culture, and academic sectors that share the common goal of helping Manchester to limit its greenhouse gas emissions and build resilience to a changing climate.

Its aim is to work with the Manchester Climate Change Agency, Manchester communities and other relevant partners to ensure the city develops and successfully implements a climate change strategy aligned with the latest science and built on the views of city stakeholders.
