TB+A at COP26: Decarbonising the built environment

For the first time, the UN's annual COP26 climate conference will address carbon emissions from buildings at a day dedicated to the built environment. Held in Glasgow from 31 October to 12th November, COP26 aims to tackle global climate change head-on with discussions on everything from gender to nature, finance to transport.

Fundamental to many of these topics, the built environment has a critical role to play in mitigating climate change, responsible for 39% of the UK’s energy-related CO2 emissions. That’s why the Cities, Regions & Built Environment Day is so vital, as an industry it’s our opportunity to commit to taking decisive action to protect our world. 

As a socially responsible and ethical partnership, our goals are strongly aligned with the objectives of the UN Climate Change Summit. Throughout COP26, we will be participating in a number of industry-led events associated and coinciding with the summit and are registered participants of the UK-GBC programme of events.
