Sheffield Launches Green Commission To Tackle City's Big Challenges

Sheffield City Council has announced that it is establishing a Green Commission for the city.

The Green Commission will explore how Sheffield can be more sustainable and establish the benefits that this will bring across the City. The Green Commission will create a vision and blueprint for the future of Sheffield as a whole and not just for the city council.
