GLASGOW – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that new infrastructure was needed to keep alive a target of capping global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius and that investment in that infrastructure could help lessen global inequality.

“To keep 1.5 degrees in sight to reach global net zero, and to protect vulnerable countries from the impacts of climate change means the development of new, clean and green infrastructure,” Johnson told a press conference at the COP26 event in Glasgow on Tuesday.

“Our pursuit of global net zero can drive global levelling up, helping developing economies fast-track their way to a prosperous, clean, and green future.”
