COP26 – the 26th U Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) is being hosted by the UK in Glasgow on 1 – 12 November 2021. There is likely to be huge international media, political and client interest in this event, and the UK Govt will be using it as a platform to demonstrate (after Brexit) continued international relevance and leadership –and to showcase the best of the UK to the world.
This unique global event combines elements of an international summit, a business conference such as Davos, and a Party Conference. It is a powerful positioning opportunity for brands and sectors as much of the media attention and political agenda of the year (outside of COVID) will be focused.
The COP26 will be focusing upon 5 themes, which are, adaptation and resilience; natural base solutions; energy and renewables; clean transport; green finance and clean investment.
