COP is an annual UN conference that brings world leaders, ministers, negotiators and civil society representatives together to address climate change and its impact. The international climate summit is used as an opportunity to review global progress around tackling carbon emissions in line with the existing targets and the world’s collective climate goals.

More than 140 events across nearly two weeks aim to focus on real estate and construction with topics such as carbon and net zero pledges will be discussed, feeding off the momentum from COP26 in Glasgow last year. COP27 marks 30 years since the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was adopted, and seven years since the Paris Agreement was agreed upon at COP21.

With increased momentum for discussions and action around healthy and climate-aligned buildings, COP27 leads with the hashtag #Together4Transparency with a focus on global carbon emissions from buildings. Carbon emissions are highlighted as a focal point to achieve the goals outlined for 2030 and 2050.

The two-week event will include a range of events that will cover all aspects of transparency of climate action and support, assessing the progress since last year’s event and developing a global strategic plan to tackle climate change. 

COP27 will seek renewed solidarity between countries, to deliver on the landmark Paris Agreement, for people and the planet, encouraging regular reporting by countries on how they are actively reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as providing reports on the results these methods have achieved, is essential to ensure accountability and enhance climate action. 

The world’s leading scientific authority on climate change, The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), states the world is now in extraordinarily dangerous territory and radical action is needed to protect our planet from further damage.

Sean Keyes, managing director shares his thoughts stating,

“The Covid pandemic has made us all more aware of the climate and the damage that can be done to the world if we don’t make changes quickly. I believe over the next 10 years there will be plenty of new jobs and opportunities created and speaking personally as a business owner, we will be doing all we can to ride the crest of the wave and push the green agenda forward to benefit our future generations and protect the planet.”
