Join Manchester Climate Change Partnership

 

As we publish the 2022 Update of the Manchester Climate Change Framework (2020-25), the message is clear. To achieve our climate goals and mitigate the impacts of climate change, urgent action needs to be taken now and by everyone at a pace and scale not seen before.

To accelerate climate action within Manchester and beyond we are inviting organisations to join the Manchester Climate Change Partnership.

The climate crisis won't solve itself. The city needs to come together as one.

The Partnership allows business and organisations a unique opportunity to be part of Manchester’s transition to zero carbon. Alongside helping to reduce the costs and climate risks to our city and economy and helping tackle the social injustice of the climate emergency. As a member of Manchester Climate Change Partnership you can expect to benefit from serveral opportunities and resources.
