How will we deliver these objectives?

Our four workstreams allow for finance to work for COP26 and COP26 to work for finance.

For 2021 we have integrated our event programme and campaigns into the Path to COP26 campaign to create four practically-focused workstreams that seek to tackle the climate emergency from a range of perspectives. Our workstream activities will be running before, during and after COP26.

As well as our own plans we are also supporting the efforts of our signatories to ensure that the finance sector makes a clear ask of governments to enable action. This has included an Open Letter to COP26 President Alok Sharma.

We are currently working on our EFx at the COP plans that will involve capturing and broadcasting events and exclusive video content throughout the two weeks of COP26.
