Greater Manchester, United Kingdom

Back to all Network Members

The fast-expanding region of Greater Manchester, which encompasses 10 cities (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan), is supporting economic growth with sustainable solutions. Setting ambitious goals for cleaner air for the region's 2.7 million residents, Greater Manchester is taking steps to reduce vehicle emissions through improved public transport, bicycle-friendly infrastructure, greener vehicles, electric car charging stations and more.

Air quality is one of the most important challenges facing Greater Manchester. While air pollution is falling in our region, we need to do more to make sure it falls further to protect the health of all our communities... Becoming a BreatheLife city region further demonstrates our commitment to tackle air quality."

Tony Lloyd, Interim Mayor of Greater Manchester
