What are the Climate Commissions?

The Climate Commissions are city-wide partnerships bringing together people from the public, private and civic sectors who work collaboratively with the local authority to help drive climate action. Commissions are independent advisory groups and do not have a governance role.  

The first climate commission was established in Leeds in 2017. Read more about the structure of the Leeds Climate Commission and how it was set up here, and explore the website below.

Under PCAN, two further Climate Commissions are due to launch in Edinburgh and Belfast before the end of 2019. PCAN aims to produce a replicable model for other places to establish their own commissions.
