  4. As #COP26 drew to a close, it's important the momentum doesn't end. This conference was an opportunity to initiate discussions and drive collaborative action - let's keep the ball rolling. I've made a short highlights reel of my time at #glasgowcop26 - filled with talks, the green zone and the #climate march. MashedVideo_1636629546076.mp4
  5. The blue skies were welcomed by the early delegates making their way across the city centre to join the climate change conference on its third day. Today marked discussions around finance in the Green Zone, with talks on gender, pensions and under-represented voices who are often left behind in financial climate debates. From the beginning, a recurring theme was voiced; the detriment of overlooking one of the greatest assets in helping us in the race to net-zero – women. Irish Independent Politician, Mary Robinson said “we can’t afford to squander the potential of half our population
  6. Carbon Offsetting Carbon offsetting is an internationally recognised method of removing carbon from the atmosphere. As concern grows for the amount of carbon being released into our atmosphere, it is our responsibility as individuals, households, businesses, investors etc to ensure we are combatting this issue. If not, we are on our way to further catastrophic disaster to our ecosystem. In simple terms, offsetting refers to the reduction of carbon in the atmosphere generated by an activity that either prevents the release of, reduces, or removes GHG (greenhouse gases) emissions
  7. Its so interesting to hear your insights and views on COP26. Lets keep doing what we can to push the agenda in the right direction!
  8. As we come to the end of the COP26 negotiations I wanted to take a moment and reflect on what I learnt during my visit to Glasgow. It was an eye-opening event to the power of innovation and desire for collaborative action between individuals, organisations and governments from across the world. I had the opportunity to speak with founders and innovators who are determined to find, and have found, solutions that will help us on our journey to net zero – because let’s face it, we need all the help we can get. However, not everything I learnt was quite so positive. There is still a large gap b
  9. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Carbon capture is a process which helps to capture and store carbon dioxide before it reaches our atmosphere and causes negative consequences. The importance of using this process is to ensure we can keep the Earths temperature below 1.5 degrees. A goal which has been set in the Paris Agreement. If we do not keep below this, we could be at risk of irreversible changes to our planet. As you will see by the graph below, here is a outline of what emissions should look like over the next few decades by utilising techniques and technologies including the p
  10. It is no secret that we have a waste problem. In a world of finite resources, the severity of the impacts of waste and convenience culture have become more visible. Efforts are being made to move towards a circular economy and with that, the rise in technologies that utilise waste as a resource. In discussing circular technologies, anaerobic digestion (AD) is one worth highlighting as it addresses the issues of both waste and clean energy production. Organic waste generated from the breakdown of food waste, sewage sludge, agricultural slurries, crop waste, etc. generates methane which, accord
  11. The looming target to meet net-zero by 2050 means there is an increasing pressure to decarbonise our energy systems. According to BEIS, heat in buildings is one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the UK, accounting for 23% of total UK emissions. If we apply the right skills and technology, as part of a collaborative approach, we will be able to minimise these emissions, if not completely eradicate them with a shift in how we produce energy. BEIS have found that heat networks currently provide approximately 2% of UK heat demand. The Climate Change Committee estimated in

  13. The University of Cambridge has found that energy generation in the UK is responsible for over 50% of total UK CO2 emissions (37% from centralised power generation and 14% from domestic heat generation from fossil fuels). If we were to shift our current energy model to an integrated and decentralised energy system these figures would drop dramatically, if not completely. Harnessing green technology within energy production is essential to meeting net-zero by 2050. Instead of a siloed approach, using one or two means of energy production e.g. traditional gas and coal, a decentralised energ
  14. More money than ever is flowing to CleanTech A decade and a half ago, “cleantech” was decidedly on the rise among venture capital (VC) investors. It became one of the hottest investment sectors among VCs practically overnight. From 2005 to 2007, cleantech venture capital deal volumes doubled, and dollars invested quadrupled[1]. Such funding has been essential to the growth of well-known cleantech firms, including Boston Power, Nest, Silver Spring Networks, and Solar City (now absorbed into Tesla) in the energy storage, smart grid, and solar industries.[2] And then, also very qu
  15. 💰 R E S E L L 💰 YOUR OLD, UNWANTED ITEMS Our last tip for making your fashion more sustainable is RESELL 💵 If you have old, unwanted items cluttering up your wardrobe, but don't want to throw them out, why not try reselling them?

  16. 🔧 R E P A I R 🔧 When things break today, it has become a habit of many to throw them out 🗑️ However, this has not always been the first choice. For generations, repairing broken items, even clothes, was the norm. Changing fashion trends has killed this creative action...

  18. 👗 R E W E A R 👕 ...YOUR OUTFITS Another way to make your fashion decisions more sustainable is by rewearing your outfits.... Who knew it was so easy to make a difference?? ⁉️ To other generations, rewearing outfits was the norm. However, as fast fashion is driven by changing trends, young people face more pressure to have the newest outfits, with many not daring to be caught in the same thing twice. This mindset is incredibly harmful on the environment, with the life span of clothing items decreasing at an alarming rate🚨 So why not be bold and rewear that outfit your friends hav

  21. ⚡How can we minimise the damage?⚡ Reducing our emissions ultimately decreases the impact climate change has on our food supply. This can be done in many ways, on a global scale and individually within your own life ♻️ However, there are some things the agricultural industry can do specifically including: 1. Reducing food loss and waste 2. Agroforestry And 3. Restoring degraded farmlands
  22. So, how is Climate Change impacting our Food Supply? 💭 Climate change has a huge impact on our ability to produce nutritious, high quality food 🍇 These impacts differ across the world, ranging from severe storms and flooding to extreme heating and fires, ultimately damaging agricultural food production 🌍 These impacts will only worsen as time goes on, threatening global access to reliable food supply. What can we do to prevent this?
  23. The sustainable and reliable supply of food is globally reliant on a predictable climate and healthy ecosystems. Climate change has already had a huge impact on the supply of food resources across the world, with disruptions due to severe weather, droughts, fires, floods and more ⛈️ This is predicted to only increase, with accelerated disruptions expected throughout the supply chain. Solutions are needed to build more climate-resilient food systems that will protect our planet and people 🌄
  24. Source What is Green Tech? As our emissions increase rapidly and our planet is a risk of collapse, the need for sustainable solutions to fight climate change becomes crucial. It’s no secret that technology has adversely impacted the environment in many ways, but at the same time, it can offer solutions to make the world a little — or a lot — greener [1]. Short for “green technology” and often used interchangeably with the term cleantech, green tech is an umbrella term that refers to those companies, projects and technologies involved in improving environmental sustainability [2]

  27. "It takes 132 million tonnes of coal to produce 60 billion kilograms of textiles" (Textile World). If the fashion industry doesn’t change the way it currently operates, it is on track to increase its contribution to global emissions by 50 per cent by 2030. The Carbon Trust reports that clothing accounts for around 3% of globally produced carbon emissions. By 2030, on current trends, emissions from production are set to rise 60 per cent, reaching an estimated 2.8 billion tonnes of CO23. The use of freight transport by the fashion industry is set to triple by 2040.
