What is COP26?

As a Principal Partner for COP26, we believe it’s important to help everyone understand what the 'Conference of the Parties' is and the role we’re playing to support this critical climate event.

COP26 - UN Climate Change Conference, will be an important global stage, giving countries worldwide the chance to:

  • Showcase what’s already been achieved on their journey to Net Zero
  • Agree how the rules of the Paris Agreement will operate going forward
  • Commit to agreeing on a plan of action to reach climate change targets
