More than two-thirds (67%) of the greenhouse gas emissions driving climate change originated in cities in 2020. It is not surprising, therefore, that mayors have joined national politicians in setting targets for reducing emissions within their jurisdictions. Many UK cities have committed to achieving net zero ahead of the government target of 2050 (in Scotland, it is 2045). Manchester aims to be net zero by 2038, Liverpool and Birmingham by 2030. Nottingham expects to become the first carbon neutral city in the UK as early as 2028. Are these pledges realistic? How much can cities and local councils actually do on their own to achieve net zero? A lot, certainlyโ€”but their capacity to cut emissions is constrained.

    Cities can do a lot for themselves without outside help but I doubt they achieve carbon neutrality
