Greater Manchester Green City Region. Creating a greener, greater city region differently

About GM Green City

The Greater Manchester Green City Region Portfolio Lead is Councillor Andrew Western, Leader of Trafford Council.  Councillor Western is also Chair to the Green City Region Board, minutes from previous meetings and dates for future meetings are updated regularly on the GMCA website.   

Along with Councillor Western, the GMCA Environment Team are here to facilitate action and support progress on the 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 5 years to help achieve this.

It is the result of 12-months' consultation and collaboration with all parts of the Greater Manchester family.
