Bristol aims to become UK's green capital

Plans to make Bristol the UKs green capital have been approved by the city councils cabinet.

Following the launch of an initiative at the start of March, organisations were invited to commit themselves to developing and implementing action plans that make a significant contribution towards a more sustainable future for all in the city.

Bristol City Council (BCC) is one of 24 organisations to have signed up to the pledge and progress has already been made in a number of areas including a new waste collection service for residents.

A key focus is also on education, with 30 eco-schools planned for the next two years where pupils will spread the message on issues such as recycling and reduce the environmental impact on the whole community.

BCC leader of the council Barbara Janke said: A key point in the cabinets approval of BCCs green capital action plan is that all the council departments will be working to deliver co-ordinated action against climate change.

Working together with other organisations from across the city and the Bristol Partnership, we are confident that this action plan and its implementation will help Bristol realise its aspiration to become the UKs green capital.
