Glasgow City Council welcomed as newest members of Transform Scotland

Published 10 October 2019 by Transform Scotland

 We’re delighted to announce that Glasgow City Council have become the newest member of Transform Scotland. Glasgow aims to become the UK’s first net-zero city for greenhouse emissions, including plans for electric buses and high-quality, segregated cycle routes, and we’ll be supporting them every step of the way.

Councillor Anna Richardson, the City Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction, said:

I am so pleased to join Transform Scotland and work alongside all the other organisations in Scotland who are leading the way to stop climate emissions from transport. We’ve got a lot of work ahead to make Glasgow carbon neutral by 2030, but working together we are ready for the challenge.”

Colin Howden, the Director of Transform Scotland, added:

It’s an exciting time for transport in Glasgow. We’re really pleased to see Glasgow show global leadership, particularly in advance of next year’s United Nations Global Climate Summit in the city. We’re delighted that Glasgow recognises the value in joining like-minded organisations at Transform Scotland, to reverse the status quo and give Scotland a green, sustainable, world-leading transport system.”
