UK100 is the only network for UK locally elected leaders who have pledged to play their part in the global effort to avoid the worst impacts of climate change by switching to 100% clean energy by 2050.
The most ambitious – our Net Zero Local Leadership Club – are doing everything within their power to get their communities to Net Zero as soon as possible, and by 2045 at the latest.
This is not just good for the planet but for the people they serve, who deserve warm homes, affordable energy, clean air, and local and seasonal food. They deserve access to thriving nature and healthy landscapes, and to live in a place they can be proud of.
To accelerate the transition to this Net Zero society, UK100 brings together local authorities, from cities to the countryside, to share knowledge, collaborate, and petition the UK government with their collective power.
They are working together to create flourishing communities, seizing the opportunities of technology to create jobs and establishing a nationwide project of renewal, focussed on local needs and ambitions.
UK100 works closely with elected representatives and policy experts to develop solutions to the challenges all our local leaders face, and to build public support for the transition.

Is Coventry a member?
People who are aware of the lack of leadership within Coventry City Council to take urgent action on climate change and their failure to declare a climate emergency will not be surprised that the leader, Councillor George Duggins, is not a member.
