COP 26 environmental update
Today the Prime Minister has urged negotiators at the COP26 summit to make bold compromises and ambitious commitments so that we can meet the goal of limiting global temperature rises to 1.5 degrees.
- Good progress has been made so far at COP26, with agreements to end deforestation, cut methane emission, phase out coal and step up climate finance – and countries must continue to build on that success to further protect our planet.
- That is why the Prime Minister is today urging the nations at COP26 to pull together as we enter the more difficult and complicated negotiations phase – urging them to make the bold compromises and ambitious commitments needed to keep 1.5C alive.
- The UK’s COP26 Presidency has already seen impressive and far-reaching agreements on climate and we will continue to push other nations to match the action we are taking as a world leader in the fight against climate change.
