What's it all about?
COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference, is due to take place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021. This is set to be the biggest global summit ever hosted in the UK. It's a significant milestone in the UK's push towards achieving its target 'net zero' carbon by 2050. COP26 affords government, businesses, NGOs, lobbyists and individual citizens a unique opportunity to campaign on climate issues. Northern Ireland must play its part, and business is a key stakeholder. This Hub seeks to inspire and inform businesses to take action now.
