Sustainable Edinburgh 2020

The framework for sustainable development

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.

The full colour version of Sustainable Edinburgh 2020 is available below. If you want a printed copy, please download the text-only version below.
