Let’s do Net Zero – the newest climate campaign for net-zero benefits

Scottish people are being called to help approach the climate emergency of COP26 in Glasgow.

Let’s do Net Zero is the name of a huge campaign that has been launched as a focus on the benefits that a new-zero society would offer to health, environment and economy. Apart from this, one of its goals is raising awareness of biodiversity loss and climate change.

The net-zero greenhouse gas emissions are estimated to be reached by Scotland by 2045.

The investments of £1.9 billion are said to be spent on low-carbon plans for 2021 and 2022 to approach climate change as well as establish green jobs.

The domestic campaign of the Scottish government will give further details and resources as to how people can contribute with the reducing of emissions, while at the same time, improving their health. Moreover, it will also present the achievements of organizations, communities and businesses that have already been acting upon this issue of reducing emissions.

According to the surveys, around 3 quarters of Scottish people agree with the idea that climate change actions should be taken now, whereas the other part made themselves clear that they knew the consequences if they don’t take action.

”Scotland was one of the first countries in the world to declare a climate emergency and we are wholly committed to ending our contribution to climate change, definitively, by 2045.” said Michael Matheson, secretary for net zero, energy and transport.

”We can be proud that we have already halved our greenhouse gas emissions since 1990, but the second half of the journey to becoming a net-zero nation will be far more challenging, and require everyone to play their part.” further stated Matheson.
