Campaign Overview

What do we hope to achieve?

The Path to COP26 campaign aims to raise ambition and drive climate action.

The finance sector needs to act together to achieve decisive action at COP26. Through our 10 year+ expertise in ethical finance, established events programme, local knowledge and strong global network, our Path to COP26 campaign brings together stakeholders from across finance and beyond to raise ambition and drive climate action before, during and after COP26. We are committed to making finance work for COP26, and COP26 work for finance.

You can watch our Executive Manager, Chris Tait, outline the key aims of the campaign in a short video below.
