A joint agreement to tackle climate change has been signed by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Governor of New Jersey Phil Murphy.  Scotland and New Jersey have set ambitious climate and clean energy targets, recognising the importance of decarbonising the energy sector and in particular the role of offshore wind.

The two administrations have agreed to:

  • share experience and best practices on tackling climate change
  • work with like-minded countries, states and regions to increase ambition on climate change
  • promote business and economic opportunities created by the transition to a low carbon economy
