The 'Glasgow Agreement' in Latin America

in partnership with LatAm INVESTOR & BancTrust

This year the UK is hosting COP26 – the world’s most important environmental summit. As heads of state and business leaders hammer out solutions, their attention will inevitably be focused on Latin America. Any global solution to climate change will rely heavily on the region as it contains an outsized proportion of the natural resources needed to combat climate change.

As a result, the agreements reached at COP26 will profoundly reshape industries in Latin America. Markets will be redrawn by the emissions targets set in Glasgow. Moreover, one of the main aims of this summit is to find mechanisms that will unleash private-sector investment in climate change solutions. In our event, our experts will explain the impact of the newly-formed COP26 agreement on their sectors. Join us as we explore the opportunities being created by Latin America’s unique role in fighting climate change.
