Feel inspired…

Helping to make Greater Manchester a world-leading Green City Region is our priority.

Our environment underpins all aspects of our daily lives. We face urgent and significant challenges presented by a changing climate that require us all to take action now if we are to achieve our goal of carbon-neutrality by 2038.

We work with the region’s leading businesses, community and voluntary, third sector and charity organistions, green influencers, schools and individuals to make a real change.

The Five Year Environment Plan

We face major environmental challenges that threaten the health and prosperity of our region. Greater Manchester is taking action with the 5-Year Environment Plan, launched at 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 4 years to help achieve this.
