Marking the 100 day countdown to the start of the COP26 UN climate change conference in Glasgow, Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said:
We are now just 100 days from the crucial COP26 event in Glasgow, where world leaders must commit to protecting our planet by doing more to tackle the urgent threat of global climate change.
As the countdown begins to the biggest summit the UK has ever hosted, every country, business and part of society must embrace their responsibility to slash greenhouse gas emissions.
The UK Government is setting a high bar for other countries to follow as we build back greener from the pandemic. This includes the Prime Minister’s ten point plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, which will help us reach our net zero commitments and create thousands of highly-skilled jobs.
