Glasgow’s net-zero carbon ambitions took another important step forward after Glasgow City Council’s climate plan was approved unanimously at last week’s City Administration Committee.
Glasgow’s Climate Plan sets out the councils ambitions around how it will achieve net-zero carbon by 2030 in response to the climate and ecological emergency, which was declared by the council in May 2019.
City Convenor for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction, Anna Richardson, said: “I’m delighted the cities climate plan has been unanimously approved.”
“Since declaring the climate emergency in 2019, we’ve consulted with organisations and individuals from across Glasgow to ensure we have a meaningful, city-wide discussion on climate.”
“These discussions will continue to play a vital part in reaching our target of net-zero carbon by 2030. As part of the climate plan, we’ll continue to engage with stakeholders from across Glasgow, which will be crucial to help identify the key issues our communities are facing and will support our aim of becoming one of the most sustainable cities in Europe.”
“This has taken a huge effort from colleagues, and the fact we received unanimous, cross-party support is a testament to how comprehensive Glasgow City Councils Climate Plan is. I want to thank everyone involved.”
