COP26 Conference – Opportunities for a Greener Transition: Italian and UK Industries’ Best Practices towards Net-Zero

On the occasion of the UN COP26 taking place in Glasgow this November, the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK has organised a conference entitled “Opportunities for a Greener Transition: Italian Industry’s Best Practices in the UK towards Net-Zero”.

The conference will give three major companies in the UK the chance to discuss their vision for the future of the energy transition, presenting case studies of their experiences in the UK and discussing it with the audience attending the event. It will also be the perfect occasion to address issues like youth engagement and cross-countries collaboration to reach the objective of COP26.

Taking place on 2nd November 2021 at 9:30 AM BST in the prestigious Kelvin Gallery of the University of Glasgow, just around the corner from the diplomatic negotiations, this conference will be the only event organised by an Italian Institution showcasing the Italian industry expertise during COP26. The event will be open to a limited number of in-person guests (selected on a first-come first-served basis) and it will be also streamed on the Italian Chamber of Commerce’s YouTube Channel. The full programme of the event is below.
