As the first G7 country to legislate for net zero by 2050, the UK is leading the world’s response to tackling the effects of climate change. That is why we are leading the resilience and adaption strand with Egypt at the upcoming Climate Change summit in New York. That is why we hope to host COP26 in Glasgow next year in partnership with Italy.
