The UK Government is committed to delivering a sustainable and carbon neutral COP26.
We will deliver a sustainable Summit through an ISO 20121 Event Sustainability Management System and integrated Carbon Management Plan.

Our approach will be guided by our Sustainability Governing Principles:
  • Actively manage potential impacts on the environment and local community and     identify opportunities to deliver environmental and social value
  • Provide an accessible and inclusive setting for all
  • Encourage healthy living
  • Ensure a safe and secure atmosphere
  • Encourage more sustainable behaviour
  • Promote the use of responsible sources and responsible use of resources throughout the supply chain
  • Leave a positive legacy

We recognise that our partners and stakeholders play a critical role in achieving our aim. We expect our stakeholders to work collaboratively and take a proactive approach through the selection of sustainable products, works and services, use of innovative approaches and implementation of best practice to meet the sustainability governing principles.
