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. 

Working together as part of the Green City (opens in a new tab) family are the region’s leading businesses, community and voluntary, third sector and charity organisations, green influencers, schools and individuals. We are adopting a Mission Based Approach which breaks down our goals into discrete challenges.

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
