We are delighted that the rescheduled dates for COP26 have been agreed. The event will take place at the SEC, 1 - 12 November 2021. The SEC is proud to be the host venue for this important event which will address the ongoing global challenge of climate change.

COP26 President-Designate and Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Alok Sharma:

"The world is currently facing an unprecedented global challenge and countries are rightly focusing their efforts on saving lives and fighting COVID-19. That is why we have decided to reschedule COP26.

"We will continue working tirelessly with our partners to deliver the ambition needed to tackle the climate crisis.”

UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa:

"COVID-19 is the most urgent threat facing humanity today, but we cannot forget that climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity over the long term.

"Soon, economies will restart. This is a chance for nations to recover better, to include the most vulnerable in those plans, and a chance to shape the 21st century economy in ways that are clean, green, healthy, just, safe and more resilient.

"In the meantime, we continue to support and to urge nations to significantly boost climate ambition in line with the Paris Agreement.”
