G7 to be carbon-neutral as a result of four projects: The government has just announced that the G7 Summit in Cornwall will be accomplished through carbon-neutrality.
The event will be hosted from 11th-13th June & will arrange seasonal produce included in its catering, with the goal to source products with a boundary of 100 miles of Carbis Bay, in addition to using sustainable energy sources and cleaner fuels such as hydrotreated vegetable oil in place of diesel for its on-site generators.
It will highlight local sustainable goods, which will range from recycled stationery & hand carved tables to natural soap.
Supervisors are further working on removing single-use plastic everywhere possible.
The carbon-neutrality of the conference will be accomplished through funding in four carbon offsetting tasks in developing countries, which include an enhanced cookstoves project in Uganda, a composting facility in Vietnam & biogas reuse located in Thailand.
COP26 President-Designate, Alok Sharma,stated: “In the fight against climate change, it is vital that we lead by example, which is why the G7 Summit is going to be a carbon-neutral event.
“Our global projects such as hydropower in Laos will help to offset emissions generated by the gathering of world leaders and every coffee cup, pen and notepad used at the Summit will be recyclable or made entirely from recycled materials.
“Our carbon-neutral, sustainable G7 Summit is an opportunity to show the world the UK is serious about uniting global leaders to deliver genuine climate action.”
