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.
