COP26

We were delighted to speak to a global audience of stakeholders at the UN COP26 summit in Glasgow on 3rd November.

We joined businesses, academics and civil society organisations from across the world to contribute to the most important discussion facing our society today.

COP26 has focused attention on the need to take climate action now to avoid the devastating impacts on people’s lives and while debate may continue on the final outcomes of the summit, there is no question that we all – individuals, businesses and governments alike – need to get to Net Zero as soon as possible.

COP26 has proven that Translink’s #LetsChangeTogether message is timely, and the statistics back this up - in 2019, transport produced 27% of the UK’s total emissions – the large majority of this (91%) came from road transport.  We want to play our part in the Race to Zero.

It is clear that public transport is key to any Net Zero strategy, and Translink wants to work with stakeholders across Northern Ireland to deliver the necessary changes to achieve Net Zero.

Translink is leading the transport transformation in Northern Ireland, aiming to operate a net zero emissions fleet by 2040.
