Time is running out on efforts to stabilize our global climate system. Doing so will require transitioning our world to a net zero carbon economy by 2050. Failing to do so risks unprecedented social and economic disruption. This year, the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in many ways represents our last chance. Countries must come together and agree on a coordinated approach to an unprecedented social and economic transition.

We believe deeply in the power of COP26 to bring together the people needed to focus clearly on the necessary commitments and pathways. Microsoft, together with the U.K. government, is pleased to announce our role as a Principal Partner for COP26.
