Ambitious plans to make Greater Manchester one of the leading green city-regions
The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, together with local leaders, are aiming to bring Greater Manchester’s date for achieving carbon neutrality forward by at least a decade to 2038. Not only is this a globally leading standard, it is based on a science based approach.
The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, said: “Greater Manchester was at the heart of the industrial revolution, a leading contributor of green-house gases. The city led the computer revolution which changed our lives. Now we are leading the low carbon revolution which will form the next chapter of how we live, work and travel. The science is clear on the steps we need to take to become carbon neutral, and some of these are very challenging. But our ambitions are high and we need communities and businesses to work with us to make this happen.”
