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
