26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26)

1-12 December 2021, Glasgow 

Five years ago in Paris, world leaders committed to a historic agreement to tackle climate change. They agreed to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 ℃ above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the rise to 1.5 ℃.

They also agreed to step up efforts to adapt to the impacts of climate change and to make finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development. 
The world has woken up to the need to curb emissions and invest in climate resilience. But we all need to move faster down this path, with the UK continuing to lead by example with its net zero targets written into law.

At COP26, we need governments, businesses, cities, the global scientific community and civil society to work together to accelerate the transformation of our economies, deal with the inevitable impacts of the climate change we have already created, and bend the curve on global emissions.
