"Climate change endangers our planet, our nation and our city.
It’s an important and growing priority for all Wulfrunians but especially our younger generations who are key to the future success of our city. They’ve told us that climate change is the single biggest issue for them. It’s time our city listens, learns and acts.
That’s why we’ve called our strategy ‘Future Generations.’ In it we set out how we will deliver our commitment to make the City of Wolverhampton Council carbon-neutral by 2028 and deliver upon the promises we made when we declared a climate emergency at Full Council in 2019.
We are also committed to leading a whole-city approach and to work with a wide range of partners across the city to safeguard the health, safety and well-being of our city and the future generations that will inherit it."
Tim Johnson, Chief Executive
Councillor Ian Brookfield, Leader of the Council
