- Sustainable Glasgow launched its report on 27 January 2010 into how the city aims to become one of Europe's most sustainable cities in the next 10 years.
The report, believed to be the first of its kind in the field of sustainability, is the culmination of a year-long study by Sustainable Glasgow, a consortium led by the University of Strathclyde.
The unparalleled strategic approach taken by the city will enable Glasgow to reduce its carbon emissions by 30% within 10 years while at the same time as creating jobs, tackling fuel poverty and regenerating the city.
It is estimated the green energy projects will bring in £1.5billion of new investment into the city during that period.
