Manchester - Zero Carbon City by 2038

In November 2018, Manchester City Council adopted new science-based climate change targets on behalf of the city to become zero carbon by 2038. The Playing Our Full Part document confirmed that – for domestic property – this would involve reducing energy demand and shifting to lower carbon heat sources, lifting families out of fuel poverty and saving residents money on their energy bills, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Low Carbon Homes is working with the Council and wider stakeholders to ensure that speakers and delegates at our 14th November event help inform the emerging Framework through positive engagement with regional policy makers, practitioners and key influencers of domestic property owners.

“We’re delighted to be able to host Low Carbon Homes in Manchester as we recognise the challenge of updating our existing housing stock to meet our Low Carbon targets and reduce fuel poverty. It’s an important initiative which we are proud to support.”
