COP26

COP26

Why is this year’s UN climate change conference so important? With last year’s meeting cancelled owing to Covid-19 and action on climate change ramping up, the pressure is now on for world leaders to come to agreement on key unresolved issues, including the role of international carbon markets in the Paris climate agreement, the phase-out of coal and the future of the internal combustion engine.

The decisions made at this year’s meeting will have far reaching effects across the markets Argus serves. On this page, we provide key insight into the developments and discussions and shine a light on how these will specifically affect the global energy and commodity markets.
