View original Glasgow aims to be the UK’s first ‘net-zero’ city

As reported by the BBC, Glasgow City Council has unveiled plans to become the first UK to reduce its greenhouse emissions to net-zero. The city is aiming to reach this target before 2045 and plans include mass charging points for electric vehicles and increased renewable energy capacity. Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon welcomes the announcement, she said “today’s announcement between Scottish Power and Glasgow City Council – to make Glasgow the UK’s first net zero city – is a very welcome step. Reaching our goals will need exactly this kind of partnership approach – with Government, business, local authorities and citizens all playing their part.”

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
