AM drop-in sessions, 20-22 Oct, 2020 | Register now || Glasgow has been set a target of becoming a carbon neutral city by 2030 following a decision by the council’s City Administration Committee, and further to a key recommendation by the city’s Climate Emergency Working Group and the council’s declaration of a climate emergency in May 2019. Over 70,000 residents live in tenement blocks across the city, with many dating before 1919 – a topic of particular interest for Glasgow’s Low Carbon Homes

COP26 will now take place 1-12 November 2021 in Glasgow and will provide a real focus point for the UK Government as the world again focuses on climate change, set to the new COVID-19 backdrop.  It’s not surprising then that one of our first Low Carbon Homes events in 2020 will be hosted by Glasgow City Council. City councils are setting bolder zero carbon targets than the UK Government, and their leaders recognise the urgency of their task and don’t underestimate the scale of the challenge.
