The name Glasgow is derived from the Gaelic word Glaschu, which can be translated as ‘dear green place’. Which is fitting given the city’s aspirations to become one of Europe’s most sustainable cities – with a focus on improving quality of life in the city, improving our built infrastructure, enhancing the natural environment and building a green economy with just transition at the top of the agenda.
