A Low Carbon City

A Low Carbon City

We're on a mission, to reduce our emissions

Climate change remains the challenge of our generation. Governments from all around the World acknowledge this and that urgent change is required. 

The UK Committee on Climate Change states that the ten warmest years on record in the UK have all occurred since 1990. The impacts of climate change are accelerating.  

As a city Sunderland needs to act NOW to reduce direct and indirect carbon emissions. 

Partners across the city developed and signed up to a Sunderland Low Carbon Framework [2.76MB] in December 2020 that will drive down emissions and seek to make the city carbon neutral by 2040.  

The Framework is supplemented by individual Action Plans developed and delivered by partners across the city.  

We are calling on you, as people who live, work, visit and invest in Sunderland, to join with us on this exciting decade of transformation. My Sunderland contains information on low carbon activity within the city and information which will help you reduce your carbon footprint.
