PA at COP26

Accelerating innovation for climate response

Start delivering bigger and bolder action

COP26 was the most significant climate conference since 2015 – a unique opportunity to finalise the Paris Agreement to drive tangible action on the climate emergency.

Call to Action from Jonquil Hackenberg to all businesses

The result was an important step in the fight against climate change; a new pact that talks about the world's use of fossil fuels for the first time. Yet there is still much to do to build a positive human future.

Implementing change with the necessary pace and scale will require unprecedented commitment, innovation, collaboration and partnerships across governments, industry, financiers and innovators. To avoid the worst impacts of climate change, global carbon emissions need to fall by 45 per cent by 2030. But the recent IPPC report shows emissions are set to rise by 16 per cent during this period.

We must all work together to accelerate and scale the climate response through financing and technological innovation.
