The 26th Conference of Parties kicks off in Glasgow on the 31st of October. Seven years have passed since COP21, when 196 UN member states and parties signed an agreement to limit global warming below 2 C.
COP26 represents the most significant opportunity since those talks to deepen the world's climate commitments, and stay true to the agreed framework. At Platts, we believe the intersection of policy, technology and markets sits at the heart of a successful energy transition – one that is both effective in terms of decarbonisation, while remaining economically viable.
In our 'Countdown to COP26' special, Dan Klein, Head of Future Energy Pathways, S&P Global Platts looks at the key market, policy, and finance themes we expect to define this year's talks, and play a crucial role in the evolution of energy markets moving forwards.
