COP26 Conference - Scotland’s role in raising global ambition About the Event

COP26 will see global, life-changing policy debated and negotiated right here in Scotland. Our contribution as a nation to shifting the carbon emissions dial will be in the spotlight as never before.

Scotland’s unparalleled natural resource has stood us in great stead to date, and renewable energy will continue to be a major part of the solution the world must deploy in our efforts to avoid the catastrophic impacts of climate change.

Proven renewable technology as well as innovation will get us there, but COP demands action from multiple fronts – a focus on biodiversity and the way we use natural resources, as well as on how people’s behaviour can affect the climate change fight for better and worse.

This conference, brought to you by Scottish Renewables, will explore the key advantages we have here in Scotland – renewable technology know-how, well-managed natural resources supporting world-leading biodiversity, and an energy workforce that is ready to make the transition to a low-carbon and net-zero world. 

Come and see how Scotland can export its decades of renewable energy expertise and truly lead the world in meeting the challenges of climate change.

You’ll learn:

  • The key role that Scotland’s renewable energy businesses will play in global decarbonisation
  • How your business can prepare for that world-leadership role
  • How three key pillars of people, nature and technology will come together to create a credible solution to climate change adaptation and mitigation
  • The aspirations for outputs and outcomes from the COP26 event in Glasgow – and what they’ll mean for our industry.

The conference is fully virtual - delegates can connect instantly in groups or 1-2-1, participate in live Q&A sessions, and engage in live polling.


Who should attend?
Any professional with an interest in understanding more about how our planet, people and prosperity interact to achieve a truly sustainable economy. If you are asking - or being asked - what’s in COP for your busines, or for Scotland, this conference seeks to provide the answers.
