Action taken in the Core Cities will determine whether the UK succeeds or fails to tackle this climate emergency. Our city regions are home to 20 million people, generate 26% of the UK’s economic output and are already working together to deliver Net Zero Carbon. But we need far more radical, innovative and urgent action, built on a renewed local/national partnership. When a major incident is declared, different services come together seamlessly to play their part. This is a major emergency, we need the same approach and we call on Government to establish a Climate Emergency Task Force with us to drive change.
