The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has released a report which outlines the severity of the threat posed by climate change.

Responding, Claire Mack, Chief Executive of Scottish Renewables, said:

“The findings of today’s IPCC report are stark: increased, urgent action on climate change is vital.

“Renewable technologies like wind, solar, hydropower, tidal and more are already combating climate change – providing the equivalent of 97.4% of Scotland’s electricity consumption and delivering economic benefits across the country, as well as displacing more than 13 million tonnes of carbon emissions every year.

“The arrival of COP26 in Glasgow in November gives us the perfect opportunity to tell the world about those successes and use the skills, knowledge and technologies which have been developed here to help the rest of the world decarbonise its economies and meet commitments made under the Paris Agreement.”
