Low Carbon

Low Carbon

In response to declaring a climate emergency, partners across the city signed up to a  Sunderland Low Carbon Framework (PDF) [2MB]  in December 2020 that will drive down emissions and seek to make the city carbon neutral by 2040.  The Framework sets out ways in which we can all do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint, and play a part in the fight to limit the global temperature rise to below 1.5°C.

The Framework will be supplemented by individual Action Plans developed and delivered by partners across the city. The city council's Sunderland Low Carbon Action Plan includes the council's ambition to be carbon neutral by 2030.
