Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Carbon Neutral Edinburgh 2030
Edinburgh's citywide vision is to be a green, fair, and healthy city that is carbon neutral by 2030. An ambitious and comprehensive cross-cutting program of work will address projects in four key sectors – domestic, public and commercial buildings, industry, and transport.
The city is working with world-leading partners like the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation and EIT Climate-KIC to implement a phased program of complex system change. It also acts as a co-sponsor of a Climate Commission that brings together partners in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to deliver a carbon-neutral city.
The solutions are multi-layered and acknowledge the urgency to act in the prevention of harmful environmental effects on citizens' health and wellbeing. It is forecast that £8 billion of investment will be required over the next decade to ensure that we can deliver these innovative solutions and create real change.
