How did we deliver these objectives?

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

To mark the arrival of COP26 in our home city of Glasgow, we created four practically-focused workstreams that sought to tackle the climate emergency from a range of perspectives. Our workstream activities ran before, during and after COP26.

We also supported the efforts of our signatories to ensure that the finance sector made a clear ask of governments to enable action, including an Open Letter to COP26 President Alok Sharma.

To watch our exclusive video content from across the two weeks of COP (including full sessions and interviews with our array of speakers) go to EFx and consult our ‘COP26 Highlights’.
