Denmark at COP26

"All generations will at some time face a decisive challenge. A chance to change the world. Climate change is our decisive challenge. And future generations depend on us."

Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, 2019

The world stands at a crossroads. The latest report from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is crystal clear in its findings. If we do not act immediately, we will not meet the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C. This is a goal we must fight to achieve! Therefore, COP26 in Glasgow this November is the most important climate conference since the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015. 

There is an urgent need for countries of the world to commit to major reductions in their greenhouse gas emissions and to accelerate the transition away from fossil fuels. This is especially true of the world’s largest emitters. 

Denmark is working to ensure that we raise global climate ambitions at COP26 – and to make sure the ambitions are backed up by action. We are leading the way with our ambitious goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 70% by 2030, and with our innovative green solutions in wind, water, shipping and other sectors. 

We are also increasing our financial assistance to developing countries for climate adaptation and the green transition. And we are working closely with businesses and international organisations to continuously push the world in a greener direction and keep the 1.5°C target within reach. 

Lets unite for a greener future No country can do it on their own
