Sustainability and climate change

2. Climate change

Stockport is playing its part to help reduce Greater Manchester's carbon footprint.

The target for 2020 is to cut emissions to 48 per cent of their 1990 levels. We're helping businesses, residents and the public sector get more energy-efficient. We're also investing in our natural environment to respond to climate change and to improve quality of life.

This work is centred on our Low Carbon Hub which is run by a board of public, private, voluntary, university and government representatives.
