Glasgow is proud to rank third in Scotland’s list of most environmentally sound cities, but the importance of taking care of our planet has never been greater. With Glasgow setting the ambitious target of becoming a carbon neutral city by 2030, we prioritise the innovation and ingenuity that will set the pace for a cleaner, greener, net zero future.
In November 2021, Glasgow will be hosting the United Nations International Climate Change Conference – COP26. At the conference, delegates including heads of state, climate experts and negotiators will come together to agree coordinated global action to tackle climate change.
Climate Change is not an isolated challenge, and we must ensure a just transition to a low carbon city. The leader of Glasgow City Council, Susan Aitken, has been clear that cities must lead the way in pursuit of sustainability and that ‘Glasgow can become the city of our times on the issues of our times.’
