Greater Manchester has vowed to fire up its R&D system to achieve its goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral city-region in the UK by 2038.

Clean growth is one of four challenges the region wants to concentrate its resources on, according to its local industrial strategy, published on 13 June. Other priority areas identified in the strategy are health innovation; advanced materials and manufacturing; and digital, creative and media.

“We want to be the UK’s leading green city-region, which is why our ambition to achieve carbon-neutral living by 2038 is right at the heart of these plans,” said Andy Burnham, the mayor of Greater Manchester. “We will show that these plans are not just the right thing for people and the environment but also right for our economy.”
