The important UN conference on climate change held in Glasgow last year (COP26) was a modest success. But modest progress is insufficient in tackling a crisis where time and transformational change is of the essence.

Ahead of the conference, I wrote to the COP President, Alok Sharma MP, and urged him to address concerns regarding the importance of this conference for tackling the climate emergency. Click the pdf link below to read the response in full.

The UK remains COP President for the coming year. It is vital we use this position to urge faster and bolder global action as well as leading by example with demonstrable climate action at home. I’ll continue pressing the Government to radically accelerate our country’s transition to a greener, more sustainable economy.
