We’re a Climate Leader at #COP26
We’re so excited to finally be able to tell you all that we have been featured in the
Welsh Governments Climate Leader Campaign for #COP26 ♻
What a privilege to have been selected to talk about our sustainability and feature in such a big campaign.
The installation of our bottling plant in 2017 was a huge step forward for our business in terms of reducing our carbon footprint; we have saved a substantial amount of Co2 by bringing all of our production on site.
With our compost toilets, wildflower roofs, solar panels, compostable packaging, community events and Microalgae project with Swansea University, we’re on our way to becoming carbon neutral and #OneStepGreener
Ahead of #COP26 follow our lead and go #OneStepGreener 💚
What is COP26?
What is COP26?
COP26 is the 2021 United Nations annual climate change conference. COP stands for Conference of the Parties. Parties are the signatories of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) – a treaty agreed in 1994 which has 197 Parties (196 countries and the EU). The 2021 conference, hosted by the UK, together with partners Italy, in Glasgow, will be the 26th meeting of the Parties, which is why it’s called COP26.
United Nations climate change conferences are among the largest international meetings in the world. The negotiations between governments are complex and involve officials from every country in the world as well as representatives from civil society and the global news media.
Net zero means finding a balance between the greenhouse gases that an individual or organisation puts into the atmosphere, and those that are ‘taken out’.
In other words, it’s making sure that for all the gases emitted, you are removing the same amount from the atmosphere, making yourself carbon ‘neutral’. Achieving net zero is necessary if we are to tackle climate change and protect people, the planet and our natural world.
The UK has set a target of being net zero by 2050.
Together for our Planet
The Together for our Planet campaign is building momentum for positive action on climate change across UK society, ahead of the COP26 Summit.
Right across the UK we are showcasing how individuals are making a difference in their daily lives and going #OneStepGreener – from the engineers working on the offshore wind farms now powering our homes and businesses, to local initiatives encouraging children and parents to walk to school. Our #OneStepGreener climate leaders show how ordinary people are making a difference, encouraging everyone else to do their bit, however large or small.
