Responding to the climate emergency is everybody’s responsibility and meeting this challenge will require widespread support from individuals, businesses, partners, other organisations, and local and national government.

The Taskforce is currently working to develop recommendations for how everyone in Birmingham can contribute to climate action and benefit from a safer, fairer, and more sustainable city.
