Scottish Government makes Transport pledge at COP25

12 December 2019

Scotland has joined a coalition of countries, cities and companies working towards net-zero transport ahead of the 2050 Paris Agreement target.

Climate Change Secretary Roseanna Cunningham signed the Transport Decarbonisation Alliance (TDA) Charter at the COP25 (Conference of the Parties) UN Climate Summit in Madrid.

Ms Cunningham attended roundtables and bilateral meetings with other nations to discuss ways to tackle the global climate emergency and the annual general assembly of the Under2 Coalition – comprising global devolved, regional and local governments, including Scotland.

She said:

“I was proud to travel to Madrid to promote Scotland’s new legally binding target to become a net-zero society by 2045, and the efforts we are making to tackle the climate crisis.

“Scotland is a world leader on climate change and I was pleased to meet many leaders and stakeholders from across the world to share our progress and future ambitions– not least to completely end Scotland’s contribution to climate change within a generation.

"The only way we can successfully tackle the global climate emergency is for all nations to work together to exchange ideas and agree shared actions. That is why I was pleased to represent Scotland at this critical summit and I look forward to deepening and strengthening international relations still further at this critical time for climate action.
