Glasgow 'working to cut carbon emissions'

Glasgow 'working to cut carbon emissions'
Glasgow is tipped to become one of the UK's most green cities, the Green Building Press has reported.

After London, the Scottish city emits the least CO2 per household when compared to other major urban areas in Britain.

It is thought that this is due in part to energy-efficient legislation set out in the Scottish government's Home Energy Conservation Act.

Between 1997 and 2007, carbon emissions were reduced by 32.1 per cent, while domestic energy consumption was cut by 30.4 per cent, according to recent council figures.

Many of these emissions were reduced through the widespread adoption of more energy-efficient technology such as insulation and heating systems in social rented housing - which has also reduced the fuel bills of tenants, many of whom receive benefits.

In a further effort to reduce the city's carbon footprint, Glasgow city councillors recently unveiled plans for the city's first five-turbine windfarm, which it helps will contribute to the goal of cutting carbon emissions by around 20 per cent within the next five years.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18523122-ADNFCR
