The Department is working closely with the Cabinet Office Central COP26 Unit. The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and COP President Designate set up a Civil Society and Youth Advisory council to support the UK’s efforts as the incoming COP26 presidency to achieve greater climate action and deliver an inclusive summit.

We have already committed to depositing the minutes from each of these meetings in the Libraries of the House as part of our wider commitment to ensure transparent engagement. The second meeting took place on 16 December and we will place these minutes, along with the Terms of Reference for the group, in the Libraries in due course.
