“Work together to deliver” is the final goal for this year´s United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). Collaboration between countries and institutions will be key in achieving success in meeting this goal, so private companies, governments and civil society need to work together to deliver joint plans, share knowledge, experience, and take actions to help our world create a better future.
COP26 recognises that for actual change to occur and occur quickly, climate finance has to be significantly increased and mobilised from both the private and public sector. Companies are being asked to disclose business risks and opportunities caused by both climate change and a commitment to Net Zero.
“To achieve our climate goals, every company, every financial firm, every bank, insurer and investor will need to change”. This statement from the COP26 website in relation to the third goal ‘Mobilise finance’ goes to demonstrate how intrinsic finance is to the climate.
Control Union and IDS Group have announced today a formal collaboration that will see the companies work together in the testing, inspection and certification industries.
