SSE Energy Solutions & COP26

What is COP26


For 25 years world leaders have met annually to attempt to tackle one of the biggest challenges facing mankind – climate change.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) states every country is “duty bound to avoid dangerous climate change and find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions”.

Officially known as the Conference of the Parties, COP is the most significant global climate change event to take place each year. Unique in that the opinions and concerns of the poorest country carries equal weight to that of the biggest superpowers. Every country on earth, bar some failed states, is a signatory to the UNFCCC treaty – a remarkable achievement.

Playing our part

Helping to achieve net zero by 2050 is at the core of SSE’s low carbon strategy that’s why our partnership with COP26 is so well aligned.
