A low carbon, connected and accessible city

A city with smart, clean, accessible and integrated infrastructure, where organisations, businesses and residents are all playing their part in responding to the climate emergency and speeding the city’s transition to zero carbon.


  • Climate action: We will accelerate the transition to net zero carbon within our own organisations and across the city through developing a shared carbon reduction route map with residents and employers, expanding the green jobs and skills offer; and maximising clean, sustainable energy sources.
  • Promote the UN Sustainable Development Goals: We will continue to engage and raise public awareness of the SDGs, accelerate collective actions and behaviour change, and commit to regularly reviewing and reporting progress.
  • Collective action to improve local air quality: We will deliver a comprehensive set of actions via the Liverpool Clean Air Plan to ensure that levels of Nitrogen Dioxide and Particulate Matter are better than the statutory legal limits.
  • Promote accessibility, active travel and sustainable transport: We will ensure that all improvements to infrastructure and transport systems are increasingly sustainable, safe, inclusive, and remove barriers to accessibility for all.
  • Value the natural environment and support biodiversity: We will develop a Sustainable City Plan to recognise the critical value of high quality green infrastructure and its fundamental contribution to population health in the city and will protect and enhance our parks and green spaces, and green routes and corridors.
