Eve (4) and Ewan (8) Henderson are big fans of youth climate activist Greta Thunberg and travelled to Glasgow from Dublin ahead of this week's United Nations COP26 Climate Change Conference. They started their visit at ScottishPower's Global Warming Stripes installation at the company's Glasgow HQ.
ScottishPower is a principal partner of COP26 and the stripes represent ScottishPower's commitment to tackling climate change and transitioning to net zero emissions - becoming a workplace that minimises the environmental impact of everything they do.
The Global Warming Stripes were created by Professor Ed Hawkins of the University of Reading. They show the change in global temperature over time. Each stripe represents the global average temperature for a single year, starting at 1850 and ending in 2020. Shades of blue indicate cooler-than-average years, while reds show years that were hotter-than-average.
Keith Anderson, ScottishPower Chief Executive, said: “We’ve all got a part to play in addressing the climate crisis and we hope our Warming Stripes are a call to action to anyone living, working or visiting Glasgow for COP26.”
