COP26 NI Business Hub
COP26 is here #COP26NI
COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference, is taking place in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November 2021. This is the biggest global summit ever hosted in the UK and 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.
