Our MP, Alok Sharma, has been appointed as full-time President of the UN COP26 climate conference in Glasgow this November by the Prime Minister.
Alok has been a leading force behind the UK’s climate diplomacy, since assuming the role in February 2020 and has said:
"The biggest challenge of our time is climate change and we need to work together to deliver a cleaner, greener world and build back better for present and future generations.
Through the UK’s Presidency of COP26 we have a unique opportunity, working with friends and partners around the world, to deliver on this goal.
Given the vital importance of tackling climate change I am delighted to have been asked by the Prime Minister to dedicate all my energies to this urgent task."
We wish Alok the best of luck for this November and we know he will do an excellent job in his continued role.
