10 steps to net zero 


Green Economy's Net Zero Toolkit


Greater Manchester has a target to become carbon neutral by 2038, but the region cannot achieve this if businesses are not on board. We have a huge challenge ahead of us, and it's one that we can only solve by working together.

.6 %

Greater Manchester's CO2 emissions equate to about 3.6% of total UK annual CO2 emissions and contribute to global climate change.


To put Greater Manchester on a path to carbon neutrality by 2038 we need to deliver an annual average of 15% cuts in emissions.


Business emissions count for roughly 1/3 of Greater Manchester's total carbon emissions.

Greater Manchester has over 124,000 businesses, if they all made steps to become greener it could make a huge difference.
