Tanya Steele, chief executive at WWF, said:
“The UN Climate Summit, COP26, provides an historic opportunity for the UK government to live up to its promises and keep our climate safe. By working with ScottishPower, a climate leader in the UK’s energy sector we can provide expertise and solutions to help drive the UK’s net zero transition. Time is running out and we need urgent action to reduce emissions for our own sakes and the sake of future generations.”
Keith Anderson, ScottishPower Chief Executive, said:
“The work of WWF to highlight and address the climate crisis is truly inspiring and I’m incredibly proud that it recognises ScottishPower as a leader towards achieving a decarbonised future for the UK.
“We closed our coal plants, ditched gas generation and built onshore, offshore and solar generation and are investing £10billion over five years to help deliver the changes needed to support net zero targets and the hope of keeping 1.5C – the goal to limit global warming – alive.
“To embrace a cleaner, greener future our cities, communities, businesses and governments all need to work together to innovate and find ways to do things differently, faster. By partnering with WWF and with COP26 fast approaching, we want to show that looking after our planet is good for business and help create a net zero economy that’s fair for all.”
