The COP26 climate talks bring together heads of state, climate experts and campaigners to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.

As COP26 Presidency, the UK is committed to working with all countries and joining forces with civil society, companies and people on the frontline of climate change to inspire action.

Throughout the event there has been lots of issues discussed that if not resolved correctly can have dyer consequences on our planet, issues such as global warming and fossil fuels have been discussed by countries leaders in an effort to achieve net-zero emissions by the 2050 goal.

During the first week of the summit in Glasgow, the government announced 60 of the UK's top 100 FTSE companies have committed to eliminated their contribution to carbon emissions by 2050, representing a total market capital of over £1.2tn. Globally over 5,200 companies have joined the pledge to net-zero nearly half of these companies are British.

The government also announced that over 2,000 small businesses from across the UK have pledged to reduce their emissions and join the Race to Zero through the Together For Our Planet Business Climate Leaders campaign, which was launched by the prime minister earlier this year to help small businesses go green.

“Businesses both large and small, across all sectors of the global economy, have a crucial role to play in both reducing their environmental impact and developing the green technologies that will set us on the path to net zero,” said business and industry minister Lee Rowley.
