5-Year Environment Plan

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. Our 5-Year Environment Plan sets out the urgent actions all of us need to take over the next five years. The plan focusses on the key parts of our daily lives where action is required and a small set of key priorities within each of those areas, where we need to take action over the next 5 years and beyond to achieve our aims.

Springboard Report

Ambitious plans to make Greater Manchester one of the leading green city-regions in the UK and Europe were approved on 27 July 2018. Following on from the Mayor's Green Summit, held in March 2018, the report acted as a springboard for our environmental ambitions and the five-year plan.
