In this episode of ERM Group Company Sustainalize's Walk the Talk podcast series, Partner Nick de Ruiter kicks off the 26th World Climate Conference with Linden Edgell, Global Sustainability Director at ERM, who will be present during the summit, on what to expect. The ‘COP26’ is seen as “the worlds best last chance” to get the climate emergency under control, and in order to ensure temperature change remains “well below” the 2 degrees Celsius agreed to by UN signatories in the Paris Agreement, countries need to act fast and double down on commitments to reach net-zero emissions. Nick and Linden elaborate on the main decision points for this COP, the potential outcomes and the part ERM plays during this summit.
