Meeting Room 4

COP26 - Cities, Regions and Built Environment Day headline event

Place: Meeting Room 4

Time: 9:00 - 10:30 GMT

Hosted by the UK Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy, this is a high-level event in the UNFCCC space, focused on deep collaboration along the building's value chain,

The challenges associated with climate change and achieving the Paris Agreement goals and the increasing sense of urgency to engage in action that will result in tangible outcomes necessitate:

  • New ways of working together, shaping a common vision, targets and goals across all stakeholders: One Voice, One Ambition.
  • Adopting a collaborative approach in the Built Environment that leverages and expands the impact and outreach of existing public and private commitments and action on climate change and resilience by rallying all stakeholders behind the Paris Agreement and COP26 goals.
