Place adds voice to COP26 climate summit

If industry is to achieve the aim of becoming net zero carbon we must take urgent action. Championing the people and companies that are taking responsibility and sharing their actionable insights is an essential function of the leading media for the property community.

In November, the UK is due to host the UN Climate Change conference in Glasgow. The spotlight will be on government and business leaders from across the world to produce action to back up the words.

Place North West and PlaceTech will aim to bring professionals working in property, regeneration and construction to the subject of climate change. Most people accept the need to do something, but many are stuck when it comes to what to do and how to do it.

A new COP26 Podcast series featuring industry players who are making a difference in the North West and further afield will feature on Place North West and PlaceTech in the weeks running up to COP26.

Through this podcast series we will bring you expert insight and highly relevant case studies from architects, planners, engineers, developers, investors and more.

COP26 is due to take place from 1 to 12 November. COP stands for ‘conference of the parties’. The UN has brought countries together to discuss climate for nearly three decades. This year’s is the 26th such gathering.

The Paris Agreement, when every country agreed to aim at limiting the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees, took place in 2015 at COP21.

The commitments agreed to in Paris did not come close to limiting the temperature rise to 1.5 degrees and the window for achieving that is closing. This year’s event will see countries update their plans for reducing emissions.
