This afternoon.

Glasgow, Scotland.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin is currently addressing the COP26 summit on Climate Change.

He said:

“We have enacted legislation to put a legally binding target of reducing our emissions by 2030 to 51% below 2018 levels. We will reach climate neutrality by 2050.

“We are working closely with our EU partners in the green transition that will make Europe the first climate-neutral continent.

“We are implementing a statutory system of carbon budgeting and emissions ceilings for each sector of the economy.”

More as we get it.
