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 is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
