SWITCH LANGUAGE:

How can Galway become one of the lowest carbon footprint cities in the world by 2030?

The top 100 highest-footprint cities worldwide drive roughly 20% of the global carbon footprint. If all cities globally, whether large or small, made concerted efforts to reduce their carbon footprints it would make a significant impact on decarbonisation pathways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
