COP26: World leaders pledge to boost green tech
Countries representing two thirds of the global economy have pledged to make green technology cheaper than its fossil fuel alternatives.
This will be achieved through a coordinated global effort to introduce green technologies around the world, align standards, and coordinate investments to bring forward the “tipping point” at which they will be more affordable to produce, operate and maintain than their fossil fuel-powered alternatives.
Boris Johnson said at the COP26 conference in Glasgow: “By making clean technology the most affordable, accessible and attractive choice, the default go-to in what are currently the most polluting sectors, we can cut emissions right around the world,” said Boris Johnson, prime minister of the UK, which is hosting Cop26.”
“The Glasgow Breakthroughs will turbocharge this forward, so that by 2030 clean technologies can be enjoyed everywhere, not only reducing emissions but also creating more jobs and greater prosperity.”
