On the 9th and 10th March 2021, Scottish Development International held the Scotland is Now: Race to Zero online event.

As Scotland progresses with its united ambition to be carbon net zero by 2045, Scotland is gearing up to host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow this November and will be centre stage in the debate on tackling climate change.

Their March conference represents a major milestone in the countdown to COP. On Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 March they hosted a series of free-to-attend online events showcasing Scotland’s capital investment opportunities.

The event was opened by First Minister of Scotland, the Rt Hon Nicola Sturgeon MSP with guest speakers including Nigel Topping, UN High Level Climate Action Champion and Chris Stark, Chief Executive of the UK’s Climate Change Committee.
