Abstract: This IET Engineering Biology special issue in Environment and Sustainability is launched in anticipation of the call for actions to mitigate climate change following the conclusion of the 26th Conference of Parties (COP26) at Glasgow. The mitigation requires multi‐pronged approaches and innovations, that include reduction of coal usage, cutting back methane emission, sequestration of CO2, financing, to name a few. But, more can and need to be done. There is a pressing need to move to environmentally friendly, sustainable low‐carbon so- lutions. Synthetic biology has been mentioned to be one of the breakthroughs that will enable inventions towards better future. Engineered biological systems have unique value propositions in solving the challenges through the creation of technologies that are environmentally sustainable.
