Runway to COP26

RGU’s ‘Runway to COP26’ represents a variety of sustainability-focussed activities and initiatives with emphasis on supporting the key themes of the milestone UN COP26 Conference.

In November 2021, Glasgow will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), the world’s most significant summit on climate change. COP26 will bring together leaders from around the world with the aim of setting out objectives and frameworks to help end the global climate crisis.

RGU are taking institutional actions to address carbon emissions by becoming a signatory of the Race to Zero campaign and our Net Zero Campus strategy. In the run up to COP26, RGU are also undertaking activities that support businesses, communities and individuals to consider their carbon footprint and provide solutions to some of the key barriers to sustainable ways of living and working.
