COP26 postponed to 2021

The Government, representatives of the COP Bureau of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) and Italian partners have taken the decision to postpone COP26. The event should now take place in 2021, still hosted in Glasgow.

COP26 president-designate and Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Alok Sharma said: “The world is currently facing an unprecedented global challenge and countries are rightly focusing their efforts on saving lives and fighting COVID-19. That is why we have decided to reschedule COP26. We will continue working tirelessly with our partners to deliver the ambition needed to tackle the climate crisis and I look forward to agreeing a new date for the conference.”
