It’s almost the end of the year. We can’t believe this year past by so fast.

This year was really filled with so many beautiful business adventures, from business partners to conferences and new projects. We are going to take a little trip down the Memory lane in our Keep Up: December issue.

Throughout November we talked about the world uniting once again at the COP26.

The news nobody has missed is about the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021.

The summit gathered parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. This years host was UK and world leaders got together and started accelerated climate action.

The COP President Alok Sharma addressed to the world leaders with this statement - “The science is clear that the window of time we have to keep the goal of 1.5 °C alive, and to avoid the worst effects of climate change, is closing fast. But with political will and commitment, we can, and must, deliver an outcome in Glasgow the world can be proud of.”

Furthermore, they discussed about a key priority - the $100 billion delivery plan. The opening of COP26 saw several new finance announcements to progress action on the $100 billion and address adaptation finance.

Also, the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has launched an international plan to deliver clean and affordable technology everywhere by 2030. Over 40 world leaders have backed and signed up to the new Breakthrough Agenda, including the US, India, EU, China, developing economies and some of the countries most vulnerable to climate change – representing more than 70% of the world’s economy and every region.

The aim is to make clean technologies the most affordable, accessible and attractive choice for all globally in each of the most polluting sectors by 2030, particularly supporting the developing world to access the innovation and tools needed to transition to net zero.

Besides the COP26 we shared some news regarding the ESTA.
