The Scottish Government has set a target date for net-zero emissions of all greenhouse gases by 2045. This transition is to benefit the Scottish environment, people and prosperity.
With the Interface mission “To enable business-academic collaborations for economic and societal benefit” the service we deliver and the collaborations we broker have a pivotal role to play in tackling climate change challenges. We have access to hundreds of academic experts and specialist facilities which can positively contribute to the Scottish Government’s Net-Zero Carbon Emission objectives.
In November 2021 Glasgow is hosting the UN Climate Change Conference – COP26 and this event is driving discussions and an exploration of innovation for net-zero in Scotland.
At the recent event ‘Scotland’s Countdown to COP26’, delivered by Scotland’s Innovation Centres and The Herald in November 2020, 99% of respondents think collaboration is essential in tackling climate change.
