British Prime Minister Announces World Plan For Clean Technology by 2030

Glasgow, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson launched today, at the COP26 Climate Summit, an international plan to deliver clean technology around the world by 2030.

More than 40 global leaders have signed the international agenda, including the United States of America, India, European Union, China, developing economies and a number of the most vulnerable countries to climate change, representing more than 70% of the world's economy.

According to the plan, countries and companies will coordinate and enhance their climate procedures each year to significantly scale up, accelerate and disseminate the development scope of clean technologies to be the most affordable and accessible option.

“By making clean technology the most affordable and accessible option, we can reduce emissions around the world,” Johnson said in a statement today.

He added that this plan would take that forward, so that clean technology will be within everyone’s reach by 2030.

Dubbed the 'Glasgow Breakthroughs', the plan will drive the global push to halve emissions by 2030, which is crucial to maintaining maximum temperatures at 1.5°C, and will support the main goals of the UK's presidency of COP26: securing global action to gradually phase out coal.
