With its high concentration of independent shops, local currency, city farms and extensive parkland and waterways, Bristol has long been a pioneer in sustainable city living. Over 9,000 people are employed in Bristol’s low carbon economy, which has the lowest carbon emissions of major UK cities, and around 50,000 residents already involved in green activities.
