Make your organisation greener

Our environment in Greater Manchester underpins all aspects of our daily lives. We face urgent and significant environmental challenges in Greater Manchester. They require us all to take action now.

Greater Manchester has published our Five-Year Environment Plan, launched in March 2019 during the second Greater Manchester Green Summit. The plan sets out our long-term environmental vision – to be carbon neutral by 2038 – and the urgent actions we all need to take in the next five years to help achieve this.

Greater Manchester is the first city-region in the UK to develop a Natural Capital Investment Plan - a plan that will help us encourage investment in our natural environment to secure financial and social returns. 

Together we can work to address the major environmental challenges to our city region:

1: Mitigating climate change

2: Air quality

3: Production and consumption of resources

4: Natural environment

5: Resilience and adaptation to the impacts of climate change
