News that Manchester City Council is to miss its carbon emission target again is unacceptable state of affairs especially after it was caught out for producing misleading carbon reduction figures last year.
The Council over the past few years has made great play of its plans to reduce climate emissions over the past few years with its
- 17 Principles for Tackling Climate Change
- Climate Change Call To Action Plan
- Climate Change Action Plan - 'Manchester: A Certain Future'
- Greater Manchester Climate Change Strategy
It seems with all of its work producing Action Plans and Strategy documents, it has no time to do any actual work on actually reducing carbon emissions.
Given the serious effects climate change has begun to have on the country, this is dangerous behaviour.
Manchester Green Party calls for the Council to take seriously its responsibility to reduce carbon emissions as part of its duty of care for the lives and well-being of its citizens.
