The United Nations Climate Change Conference

Helping to achieve net zero by 2050 is at the core of our low carbon strategy. That’s why we were proud to be a Principal Partner to COP26, the UN climate change summit, which took place in Glasgow last November.

Powering change together: SSE Airtricity and COP26

COP26 was billed as the most important climate summit since the landmark Paris agreement at COP21 back in 2015. In November, COP26 brought countries around the world together to discuss climate change and – crucially – how to tackle it.

Sign a turbine – pledge your support

SSE’s Dogger Bank wind farm is being built off the Northeast coast of England. As the biggest single source of offshore power in the world, it's a symbol of the change needed globally. To mark this pivotal moment in history, we’re asking you to virtually sign a turbine blade and pledge your support for climate action following COP26. Join the thousands of people who already have put their name to powering change. Learn more and sign the turbine here.

A Greener Journey

Terms like Net Zero or events like COP26 can feel removed from our everyday lives – we want to change that.

Meet Victory Luke, a student and climate ambassador. We’ve been on the road with Victory, to meet some of the people driving change for a greener future. In the run up to COP26, Victory visited the first all-island climate event in Belfast and the National Geographic ‘Planet or Plastic’ exhibition.

A Greener Journey at COP26 Glasgow

In this episode of ‘A Greener Journey’ Victory is joined by Professor Brian Cox, Dr Tracy Morse and others at COP26, breaking down the jargon surrounding net zero and exploring what it really means to power change.

Reaching Net Zero

To avoid the worst effects of climate change we collectively need to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees and to do that countries worldwide have committed to cutting carbon emissions to zero by 2050, making us carbon neutral. That’s the Net Zero we hear so much about and setting out a plan to achieve that is what world leaders are coming together to do at COP26. At SSE Airtricity we’re committed to working with governments and other stakeholders to help meet this challenge and our COP26 partnership is key to this commitment, allowing us to move the dial on climate discussions on behalf of our customers.

There is a real opportunity for our generation to be the one that people look back on as making the right decisions at the right time to change our planet. We may have to adjust mid-journey and when we get there, our destination might look different to what we thought when we set out, but our ultimate goal is achievable and COP26 will certainly help shape how we get there. As a business, our challenge centres around how we can help our customers make greener, more sustainable choices and as individuals we can all make small changes to our daily decisions that will benefit our environment.
