We cannot afford to wait to act against the threat of climate change. We must work together to protect our planet and people and ensure a greener, more resilient future for us all.
The UK will host the UN climate change conference COP26 with our partners Italy in November 2021 to bring together world leaders to commit to urgent global climate action.
But each of us has a part to play. That’s why, in the run up to the summit, the Government will be working closely with businesses, civil society groups, schools and people across the UK as part of our conversation on tackling climate change.
Many people from all over the UK are already doing their bit on climate change, from the engineers working on the offshore wind farms now powering our homes and businesses, to local initiatives encouraging children and parents to walk to school. We should celebrate them and inspire more to join them.
How can I get involved?
Race to Zero: Businesses from every corner of the UK are invited to join the #RacetoZero. Race To Zero is a global initiative, backed by science-based targets, to commit businesses, cities, regions, investors and universities to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 at the very latest.
