Thinking beyond carbon in the race to net zero
The Conference of the Parties (COP) is an annual conference of the signatories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The framework is a multilateral treaty; its objective is to “stabilise greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system”.
From November 1–12, the UK and Italy will jointly host the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP26. The event will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, under the presidency of the UK. The event will be more significant than COP25, as it will be the first major conference attended by the Unites States under the Biden presidency. COP26 will offer a chance for participating parties to accelerate actions towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Join the Nature Positive team live from COP26 in Glasgow on Thursday, 04 November. Together, we will explore how to approach sustainability and the shift necessary in business thinking in the run-up to 2030. Currently, we are at a tipping point. Businesses and governments are setting net-zero targets to tackle the climate crisis, but our direct and inextricable link to nature cannot be ignored in these efforts. As we adapt to climate risks to sustain our businesses, we cannot treat nature or the resources it provides as externalities.
