Green Action Trust publishes discussion paper on building a legacy from COP26




1 November 2021

The Green Action Trust is today publishing a new discussion paper highlighting the practical steps that can regenerate our environment, help meet climate targets and secure a legacy from COP26.

The paper, Building a legacy from COP26: Net Zero, Holistic Climate Action and Nature-Based Solutions, draws on findings from the Scottish Council for Development and Industry on the readiness of Scottish organisations for Net Zero.

As COP26 gets underway in Glasgow, this paper discusses the practical steps towards decarbonisation through place-based policy and environmental regeneration and highlights the role of the Green Action Trust working in collaboration with organisations across the public, private and third sectors to deliver meaningful climate actions.

In a call to action, the paper states that securing a legacy from COP26 will hinge upon collaboration on climate actions between individuals, organisations and delivery experts, including the Trust, and that it is possible to turn big ideas into meaningful actions across the country.

Today’s publication follows a successful event hosted by the Trust last week, which was addressed by the Scottish Government’s Minister for Environment and Land Reform, Màiri McAllan MSP, and a panel of environmental and regeneration experts.  The event examined readiness for Net Zero, the importance of collaborative action and the measures that organisations and individuals can undertake now to meet climate targets, regenerate our environment and ensure a just transition to Net Zero.
