The Lincoln Climate Commission emerged from a collaboration with the City of Lincoln Council, Siemens, Transition Lincoln and the University of Lincoln. Since then the group has expanded to include the valuable input from a range of businesses, organisations and members of the public who wish to work together to make a positive choice on issues relating to energy, carbon, weather and climate. Run by volunteers, the Lincoln Climate Commission is part of the wider Place-Based Climate Action Network.
Join Lincoln’s journey to net zero
To become a net zero carbon City by 2030 we need to make changes to our daily lives to reduce emissions, particularly from transport, energy use and the everyday items we all consume. Our 2030 Climate Action Plan is now live. View it now: Climate Action Plan 2030
#ClimateHopeLincoln is helping our passionate local changemakers and committed organisations unite in climate action. Residents and organisations in Lincoln are taking part in a nationwide campaign next week to highlight climate action in Lincoln, ‘Lincoln 2030’ our ambitious target for Lincoln to be net zero carbon by 2030 and #Climate Hope Lincoln.

The value of the Climate Commission is its ability to harness the collective energy, vision and ambition of key stakeholders across Lincoln and Lincolnshire to deliver a step-change in its response to the climate emergency. As Chair of the Lincoln Climate Commission, I am excited to welcome you to the Lincoln Climate Commission and am hopeful that together we can lead Lincoln forward into a carbon free and climate resilient future.
