The environment theme encompasses the natural and built environment, including its design and architecture, green spaces, and waterways


Access to green space has health and wellbeing benefits, as well as urban cooling in heatwaves, helping flood prevention, improving carbon storage, and increasing biodiversity. [1]


MK Council has stated its aspiration to make MK the world’s greenest city and to be carbon neutral by 2030.

The City is well known for the integration of green spaces and water into its design.

However, the low-density layout creates a comparatively high level of greenhouse gas emissions from transport.

MK Council set itself a target of 70% recycling by 2024/25. Rates for recycling household waste are currently at 54%, above the average for England.

Innovative solutions

A programme to pilot the application of emerging technologies to help MK become carbon neutral by 2030 is being sponsored by MK Council.

Projects funded include sustainable mobility, renewable energy, and air quality, among others.

Vital Thinking

How do we raise the awareness of the issues around climate change to encourage all citizens to contribute to MK Council’s aim to become carbon neutral by 2030?
