Following up on COP 26

Today the COP26 President urged countries around the world to deliver on the commitments made in the historic Glasgow Climate Pact as he sets out our agenda to turn ambitions into action. 

  • There is no doubt that the commitments secured at COP26 were historic – but they cannot be just words on a page. 
  • That is why Britain is urging countries to keep their commitment in the Glasgow Climate Pact, and deliver on: 2030 emissions reductions through net zero commitments, ending coal power, halting deforestation, and transitioning to clean vehicles, along with providing international finance to support countries vulnerable to climate change, to keep 1.5 degrees alive.
  • Our absolute focus for the UK COP26 Presidency year must be is delivery - the Glasgow Climate Pact was a product of international cooperation and a practical demonstration of Global Britain in action and the UK will ensure the commitments made are honoured.
