Motion S5M-17322: Glasgow Making the First Move on Climate Neutrality

15 May 2019

That the Parliament notes that Glasgow City Council, in partnership with Scottish Power, has committed to ambitious plans that would see Glasgow become the UK’s first “net-zero” city; understands that the partnership aims to reach this target earlier than what it considers the already progressive target of 2045 set out by the Scottish Government; further understands that it is hoped that such a target will create a “race to zero” between other cities, including Edinburgh, that are aiming to balance greenhouse gas emissions and offsetting; commends the vision and cooperation of Glasgow City Council and Scottish Power, and encourages other Scottish cities to make similarly ambitious climate-neutral plans.
