About Us

In 2010, Low Carbon Liverpool published 'Building the Low Carbon Economy on Merseyside', a report which found that in order to ensure future success, Liverpool should embrace the low carbon economy and the opportunities that come with it. Now,  we explore the opportunities that Liverpool has to realise that potential.

Drawing upon the lessons that we have learned from successful European cities, we are actively supporting the creation of a 'City Green Partnership' for the city to help foster a long term, strategic environmental vision for Liverpool. To achieve this we have been working with policy makers and members of civil society from across the city. Reflecting the conclusions of our initial report in 2010 we envisage this process will lead to Liverpool bidding for a future European Green Capital award.

The second key aspect of our programme recognises that Small/Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Social Enterprises are crucial to this agenda, both in terms of delivery and job creation. To this end we are working to reignite and expand the Chamber's Green Ambassador programme, to encourage all who are willing and able to develop the low carbon aspects of their organisations.

As part of of this, we'd like to invite you to engage with our work, either through our seminar series, by writing to us, or our various social media platforms. We want your ideas and opinions to shape Liverpool's low carbon economic future.
