All challenges and comments on this site have been disabled, whilst public consultation on the draft 2030 Climate Strategy for Edinburgh is underway.

Please visit our consultation hub and have your say on our plans to deliver a net zero, climate ready city by 2030. 


We have set an ambitious target for Edinburgh to become a net-zero city by 2030, 15 years before Scotland's national net-zero target.

This means that by 2030, we will be making sure that we remove the same amount of carbon and other greenhouse gases that we, as a city, put into the air.

There is a lot that we need to do to meet our net-zero aim, and we will only get there if everyone plays a part.

That's why we have created Edinburgh Talks Climate, to inform us what local action and engagement could make a real difference in encouraging people to make real changes to their everyday lives.

Your views and ideas from this site will also help shape the content our Sustainability Strategy, which is set for public consultation in Summer 2021.

This site is just one of the ways which we plan to engage with people living and working in Edinburgh on climate change and sustainability issues.
