Birmingham's Green Commission

The Green Commission's Vision, launched in March 2013, sets down a challenging and robust programme of work that aims to make Birmingham a leading green city.

The new Green Vision strategically links our work on ecosystems services, adapting to climate change, carbon reduction and green jobs and innovation through:

- Planning framework and policy
- Sustainable energy and CO2 emissions reduction
- The green economy

The benefits of becoming a leading green city are enormous for Birmingham. Green jobs are already being created locally but we need to ensure Birmingham becomes a place that businesses want to invest in.

If we can build more sustainable transport systems, create energy efficient homes and develop new ways of generating energy, citizens will save money and enjoy a better quality of life.
