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.
As we approach the summit we’ll bring you articles, blogs and features here, exploring the issues at stake for COP26 and throughout November we’ll be updating on the debates that are core to delivering a decarbonised future as we power change together.
