Navigating your first COP – Everything corporates need to know: A Cicero/amo primer

by Tom Wilkins, Director Public Affairs & Sophie Duley, Account Executive

From 1-12 November 2021, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), in partnership with Italy.

The COP26 summit will bring Parties together for the first five-year review of the Paris Agreement and it is vital that the UK galvanises global action to reach the ambitious targets of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). State and non-state actors are due to congregate in Glasgow; all working towards tackling climate change through coordinated action.

To demystify the COP26 summit and navigate the various climate-related initiatives, the Cicero/AMO team has produced this primer. Our primer breaks down the UN terminology, explains the difference between the ‘Blue Zone’ and the ‘Green Zone’, introduces you to key stakeholders, important dates for your diary, and explains how organisations can get involved.
