Mitsotakis at COP26: Greece Can Contribute Significantly to Green Transition

November 1, 2021

LONDON – Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis spoke at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) on Monday, which is being held in Glasgow from October 31 through November 12.

At the conference, which is hosting 130 world leaders, the Greek premier noted that Greece’s carbon emissions footprint is low, and the country can contribute significantly to green transition.

To that end, noted Mitsotakis, Greece has undertaken several initiatives, including encouraging the replacement of fossil fuels in the country’s shipping industry, turning Greek islands to fully green destinations, creating offshore wind parks, and completing the phasing out of lignite dependency for electricity production by 2028.
