Connect with Climate Change: Sharing ideas, inspiring actions

ScottishPower, together with University of Strathclyde and the University of Glasgow, are delighted to be hosting Connect with Climate Change Events, a virtual exchange series which will take place throughout 2021 in the run up to COP26.

In advance of COP26 coming to Glasgow, ‘Connect with Climate Change’ offers a platform to engage with academics, students, public and businesses to share ideas and views on a range of climate change topics. This series of virtual events will encourage “real time” discussions around the different climate issues and provides a forum where, through open dialogue, convention can be questioned and act as a catalyst for positive sustainable change.

To find out more about Connect with Climate Change and why you should attend  our virtual event series, watch this introduction with Victoria Sinclair, our COP 26 Programme Manager.

Event 2

Our next event, An equitable and sustainable future for all: pipe dreams or real schemes? will take place on the 18th March.

Focus of session

Delivering Net-Zero by 2045 requires major shifts in our everyday lives including how we heat our home and workplaces, how we travel, and what we eat. While much of the progress to date, such as decarbonisation of the power sector, has happened without many people noticing a difference in their routine day, the changes to come will be felt across all of society. Join us to discuss how decarbonisation can happen in a fair, equitable and inclusive way that empowers communities and leaves no-one behind.


Event 1

‘Climate Change – The Financial Conundrum of the Century’ was held on the 28th January. Our event highlights will be available to view soon. 


  • Lotte Beekenkamp, Innovation Analyst, Accenture and Board Member 2050 Climate Group
  • Dr Andrea Coulson, Reader in the Department of Accounting and Finance in Strathclyde Business School, University of Strathclyde
  • Charles Langan, ScottishPower Finance & Resources Director
  • Prof Duncan Maclennan, Professor of Public Policy, University of Glasgow

Focus of session

We joined the University of Strathclyde and the University of Glasgow to learn more about what it means for businesses to make climate-friendly financial decisions. Many strategies exist for companies to tackle climate change, for instance, reducing carbon use and carbon emissions or investing in green technology or social enterprise. Our speakers discussed how we can ensure transparency and use responsible decision making to lead towards a better future for all.
