The 2021 COP26 UN Climate Change conference is this year being hosted by the UK in Glasgow.
Taking place from 31 October to the 12 November, the conference has brought parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. But how can Cornwall’s assets, skills and distinctive opportunities support national and global ambitions for the energy transition and low carbon agenda?
Chair of the Local Enterprise Partnership, Mark Duddridge says: “Decarbonising our economy is both an environmental imperative and a huge opportunity for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
“The move away from fossil fuels requires massive investment in new global industries, from floating offshore wind to electric vehicles and battery storage. Investment will lead to the creation of hundreds of thousands of skilled, well-paid jobs in the UK, benefitting the economy.
“For Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, the scale of opportunity in the race to net zero cannot be overstated. Our location at the tip of the South West of the UK and our geology gives us an abundance of resources to power the Green Industrial Revolution, underpinned by generations of innovation and enterprise.”
