COP26
Our take on the climate change agenda
The UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021. It is described as the most significant climate event since the 2015 Paris Agreement. In the countdown to the talks that aim for coordinated action on climate change and to establish net zero emissions targets, we posted our insights on some of the key issues and implications for the transition to a low carbon economy.
