Practical activity that we are implementing that can help achieve net zero by 2050
1) Rapid increase in the self-generation of renewable energy. Three-fold increase since 2010 from sewage biogas and wind. Now we are committed to an ambitious programme of solar PV and energy storage.
2) Working with government and others we have helped to lead dramatic reductions of carbon and cost in the UK construction sector. At Anglian Water we have reduced the capital carbon in our new assets by more than 50%. This approach reduced costs in our £2bn, 2010-2015, investment programme by more than 20%.
The Balearic Island's government has launched a pioneering plan to phase out greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
City of Strasbourg
The City of Strasbourg, as one of the Capitals of Europe, is particularly committed to inventing a new urban development model for tomorrow. To do so, our "common language" should be the new framework of the SDGs that we must localize.
