Sustainability and the Green Commission

The Vision of the Birmingham Green Commission pulls together three key strands that will make Birmingham a leading green city:

  • Planning framework and policy;
  • Sustainable energy and CO2 reduction; and
  • The green economy.

Birmingham has an ambitious target of a 60% reduction in total CO2 emissions by 2027, against 1990 levels.

  • The Green Commission’s priorities are:
  • To accelerate investment in how we heat and power the city;
  • Create more local renewable energy;
  • Improve the way we travel and get around; and
  • Widen our investment in building energy efficiency programmes.
