Green New Deal

We have launched a report on The Green New Deal in the North West, which presents a framework of how we can fundamentally transform society in the face of the current climate emergency.

Joined by a range of expert guest speakers, including former Green Party leader and newly-appointed member of the House of Lords, Baroness Natalie Bennett, we held roundtable discussions and a feedback session on the report contents.

Five key areas have been identified, of critical change that is required: renewable energy supply; energy-efficient buildings; sustainable transport; a zero-carbon, circular economy; and land use, food and biodiversity.

The report outlines key opportunities and examples of best practice from across the region, setting out some of the policies that are needed to scale-up action. Find out more about the Green New Deal and download a copy of the report here.
