COP26, the 26th annual UN conference on climate change, is here and expectations are high. In the this article, our ESG team explains more about the summit, what might happen there and how this may well impact investors everywhere.
What is COP26?
COP26 is the next annual UN climate change conference. COP stands for Conference of the Parties, and the summit will be attended by countries that signed the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) — a treaty that came into force in 1994. This year will be the 26th annual summit. With the UK as President, COP26 takes place in Glasgow.
When will COP26 take place?
COP26 will take place from 31 Oct 2021–12 Nov 2021 (it was originally scheduled in 2020 but was postponed due to the pandemic).
