Focus Forward: Glasgow a leader in 2030

As we prepare to host the COP26 summit in November 2021, how will Glasgow businesses address the global climate emergency?

We are all aware of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for the business community as we address climate change and our role in reducing carbon emissions. 

The event, organised by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce & Royal Bank of Scotland will explore and evaluate the role of businesses in addressing the UK national and local targets to fighting climate change, and how as a city we can establish an economic model to foster business growth, attract business investment and talent as we move into the 2020’s. 

The event will explore …

  • What hosting COP26 means for the city
  • What the implications for businesses will be over the next 10 years
  • How businesses are already innovating, disrupting and preparing us for the challenges of the next decade
