COP26 HUB

 

IMechE, COP26, and Beyond

The UK hosted the United Nations climate change conference, COP26, in November 2021 and the IMechE was there.

Engineering is key to delivering reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to prevent dangerous levels of global warming. COP26 was a landmark event, but it is also just a beginning. IMechE wants to build upon it and continue to highlight the role of engineers in creating a sustainable world.

This webpage was created to provide a single hub where our members can find out about all our activities around COP26, the centrepiece of which is was a hybrid 2-day conference on 28 - 29 October 2021. Three policy papers were published by our members on three key themes of the conference:

  • Energy Transition
  • Clean Transport
  • Cities and the Built Environment

You can find them on our Policy and Press webpages.

The Institution was also granted Official Observer status by the UN and sent a delegation of eight members to the ‘Blue Zone’ at COP26. This Official Observer status continues in perpetuity and with that in mind the Institution is already planning what we might do in advance of COP27.

Watch this space for updates.
