Building ‘COP-timism’: The Key Takeaways of COP26

30th November 2021

Corporate Sustainability Lead

With COP26 – one of the most important climate change conferences take place in years – coming to a close, questions remain about whether countries can maintain their pledges and beef up commitments towards mitigating climate change.

Despite bringing parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, a lot of climate diplomacy needs to be done over the next 12 months – especially in the build up to COP27 in Egypt and COP28 in the United Arab Emirates.

In this episode, WSP Middle East’s ESG Advisory Service Lead, Daniel Gribbin is joined by David Symons, the head of WSP’s global innovation and sustainability programme ‘Future Ready’, to outline the key breakthroughs and takeaways of COP26, as well as question if the target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius is still alive.
