Climate Positive

LET'S CHANGE TOGETHER

With the climate change emergency now labelled a ‘code red for humanity’ moment, Translink has launched an exciting campaign.

The campaign, under the banner #LetsChangeTogether, is calling for organisations and individuals to join with it to make the necessary changes to achieve net-zero emissions across Northern Ireland.

Campaign initiatives include:

This campaign coincides with the publication of Translink’s own Climate Positive Strategy ahead of the COP26 Global Conference in Glasgow, where we have pledged to become net-zero by 2040, ahead of the Paris Climate Agreement targets and be climate positive by 2050.

Collective Change

This strategy recognises the need for;
Zero Emissions
Show leadership in striving to deliver zero emissions across our fleet and operations.
Better Travel Choices
Collective positive change in the behaviours of our passengers and the wider public as transport accounts for 35% of all consumed energy in Northern Ireland and 23% of all greenhouse gas emissions, mostly from private car use.

“The climate emergency is the single biggest issue of our times, and the recent IPCC report underscores the need for positive action now. This is critical at an organisational and individual level and the upcoming COP26 event will bring the need for immediate change into sharp focus for everyone.

“We believe that through both individual and collective change we can transform our future for the better and today we are launching an exciting programme to encourage others to join with us to make the necessary changes, be that in their travel choices or in other environmentally friendly ways. We would ask everyone, whether they’re individuals, community groups or employers, to consider what positive changes they can make in the weeks and months ahead and #LetsChangeTogether.”
