Duration: 60 minutes

Hopes are high for the COP26 conference in Glasgow, with many heralding it as the most important climate summit since Paris in 2015. U.K. Prime Minister and event host Boris Johnson wants COP to “keep 1.5 degrees alive”. U.S. Climate Envoy John Kerry plans to push major developing countries to curtail their emissions output faster. Meanwhile, developing countries want the U.K., U.S. and other wealthy nations to deliver on the $100 billion per year in support they promised 11 years ago, but have yet to deliver.

Join BloombergNEF analysts to review the outcomes of COP26. The discussion will assess to what extent the event made progress toward the Paris Agreement goals and implementing new cooperation mechanisms (Article 6) as well as the overall implications for companies and national policy makers.
