The Path to COP26

Apr 20, 2021

VENUE: Webinar

TIME: 11:00am - 12:00 noon

SSE as Principal Partner of COP26, in conjunction with BITCI, invite you to ‘The Path to COP26’ on Tuesday, 20th April from 11am – 12 noon.

As many countries look to rebuild their economies in the wake of the pandemic, there has been a major emphasis on ‘building back better’ through a green recovery, and COP26 will be the first time nations come together to discuss the commitments they made in the Paris Agreement in 2015.

This year COP26 will take place in Glasgow, and globally, including here in Ireland, reputation on climate action will come into focus, with investors, employees, customers, and regulators asking business for transparency on actions to reduce carbon emissions.

During this webinar, speakers will discuss the preparation for the months of climate action ahead of the flagship summit in Glasgow, where world leaders will be seeking a more ambitious climate change agreement. The event will focus on the role that government, business and other stakeholders will play in supporting the delivery of a successful and impactful COP in November and beyond.

The event will be moderated by Tómas Sercovich, CEO, Business in the Community Ireland.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Stephen Wheeler, Ireland Country Lead, SSE
  • Susanne Olbrisch, Climate Policy Specialist, United Nations Development Programme
  • Fiona Macklin, Campaign Coordinator, Race to Zero
