Manchester Launches Climate Change Action Plan

By Adrian Slatcher

Manchester City Council last night launched Manchester: A Certain Future – our collective plan on climate change, before leaders from the council depart for Copenhagen as one of 100 cities presenting to the UN Climate Change forum.

Manchester plans to reduce the city’s carbon emissions by 41 per cent by 2020 and has mapped out impressive plans including smart metering, radical changes to energy production, improved public transport and more energy efficient homes.

A new website promoting the vision has been launched to communicate the plan, and the actual document can be easily downloaded from here.

PEPESEC partners Manchester City Council and Manchester Knowledge Capital have been involved closely in the process of developing this plan over the last few months.
