Copper will be travelling to COP26 in Glasgow, as we seek to play our small part in helping the UK make its essential transition to net zero.
We’ll be hosting a panel discussion in partnership with Renewable UK and Energy UK live from Glasgow on Monday 1 November at 12.30pm, where industry leaders will discuss public perceptions of the energy transition and how we can establish support moving forward.
Bringing expert insights from across the energy sector, the panel will consider public perceptions of the changes to society that will be needed to decarbonise our lives, as well as the perceived impacts of new energy generation. We will also consider how people expect their lives to change, including whether they will become more or less prosperous, whether changes will impact domestic lives and crucially who should pay for the transition.
You can sign up to the event here.
Our panellists are:
Alongside this event, energy director Sam Cranston will be speaking on a panel hosted by Solar Energy UK in Glasgow on Wednesday 3 November, where he will be sharing insights from our latest research into public attitudes to solar. A report, in collaboration with Solar Energy UK, will be published in November.
Alongside COP26, we will be unveiling our latest and most in-depth Attitudes research, which focusses on public perceptions of the changes to society that will be needed to decarbonise our lives. The research considers public attitudes to the infrastructure developments that we will potentially need, including perceptions of the safety of emerging technologies such as hydrogen and new nuclear, societal impacts of new energy generation and views of changing transport systems.
We also consider how people expect their lives to change, including whether they will become more or less prosperous, whether changes will impact domestic lives and crucially who should pay for the transition. When published, Attitudes to Net-Zero, will be available here.
Managing partner Martin McCrink will be on a panel hosted by the Major Projects Association on Tuesday 9 November, concluding their series of “Don’t mention” roundtables. Martin will be sharing insights from another of our latest attitudes reports which focuses on public attitudes to net zero. Register for the session here.
In the build up to COP26, Copper has committed to playing our own part in the transition to net-zero by becoming a carbon neutral business. We have partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain to assess our emissions, establish strategies to reduce carbon emissions where possible and to offset emissions that are outstanding.
Copper plays an important role in supporting sustainable infrastructure, from renewable energy generation, to hydrogen and carbon capture, to low carbon transportation. We are determined to support our clients’ own transitions through research, insight and making our own commitment to a low carbon future.
