About Sustainable Edinburgh 2020

Sustainable Edinburgh 2020 (SE2020) is the Council's Framework for the sustainable development of the city until 2020.

Our vision is that

  • "Edinburgh in 2020 will be a low carbon, resource efficient city, delivering a resilient local economy and vibrant flourishing communities in a rich natural setting."

The Framework is based on the ten Aalborg Commitments.
