Greater Manchester at COP26
Greater Manchester’s Ambition to Level Up, becoming the UK’s Leading Green City Region
Greater Manchester’s political, civic and business leaders are attending the COP26 United Nations Climate Change Conference.
Achieving net zero and levelling up are twin priorities for the UK government and for Greater Manchester.
We believe that a green economy is a levelled-up economy; meeting our carbon neutral targets and achieving net zero across transport, housing and infrastructure will be fundamental to truly levelling up.
We need Government support to achieve this systemic transition as we work towards our target of achieving net zero carbon neutrality by 2038.
Greater Manchester is the city region where people and businesses can easily realise their net zero ambitions as a place to live, work, study and invest. We are developing a model others can follow.
