The sheer size of the COP26 conference means the event requires a huge amount of resources. The organizers are trying to make it as sustainable as possible, and to source food on the menu locally.
Delegates are ferried around in electric buses and encouraged to walk or take public transport whenever possible.
Coffee (and there’s a lot being consumed) is served in reusable cups and on the menu yesterday was locally-sourced Scottish barley broth soup, and salmon and beetroot salad.
Temporary traffic lights that have been installed across Glasgow to manage the traffic and ensure security are solar-powered and hydro-treated vegetable oil is being used in generators instead of diesel.
And in keeping with the sustainability theme, taps in the bathrooms are cold water-only (which might be a questionable choice given the current coronavirus pandemic!).
