The is one of a suite of activities developed by Edinburgh Science, the educational charity that organises the city’s annual Science Festival, and is supported by Galbraith in the run-up to the COP26 climate change conference taking place in Glasgow this autumn.
Another key activity is the Climate Opportunity Ideas Factory, a series of round-table meetings for Scottish industry leaders to discuss ideas for action that will enable Scottish enterprises to respond to the climate challenge.
Eleanor Harris, Natural Capital and Carbon Leader at Galbraith, said: “Tackling climate change is a shared endeavour, for individuals, those in land management, in service businesses, and as a society. At Galbraith we are able to make those connections, and it is a privilege to work with Edinburgh Science to help make Scotland and the UK reach net zero targets on the basis of the best knowledge available.”
Calum Innes, Partner in Galbraith’s Energy department, said: “The climate challenge requires business and government to go full-steam ahead on all fronts – renewables, land management, transport, housing – and at Galbraith we have the professional expertise to drive forward all of these.
“In the year of COP26 we are also preparing to launch Galbraith’s own Net Zero project, measuring our carbon emissions and developing a net zero target.”
