Nicola Sturgeon – 2021 Comments on Working With Sajid Javid on Green Investment

The comments made by Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish First Minister, on 3 November 2021.

COP26 provides what is possibly our best chance to advance the societal and economic change that is demanded by the climate emergency, delivering lasting action towards net zero and a climate-resilient future.

By grasping the opportunities provided by green industries and supply chains, we can create the good green jobs of the future and secure a just transition away from fossil fuels.

The role of private capital is fundamental to achieving this and governments must do what they can to channel investment into areas supporting transformational change.

Through our Green Investment Portfolio, which is already valued at £2 billion, the Scottish Government highlights a range of exciting, commercially assessed investment propositions to investors and showcases businesses in Scotland as world leaders in innovative green industries of the future.
