WEF 2021 Programme through to COP26 and beyond

The WEF's 2021 Programme through to the COP26 Summit and beyond provides a comprehensive briefing series for senior stakeholders in the energy, climate and sustainability domains which considers both the emerging issues affecting the UK’s long term Net Zero strategy and the international contexts shaping them. For the 2021 Season we offer a comprehensive programme fully accessible to both our Members and to our established Knowledge Transfer Network of policymakers, regulators and NGOs. The WEF Programme is currently divided into two complementary workstreams:

       1. Energy Sector Industrial Assessments and their Decarbonisation Strategies

       2. Climate Risks, Corporate Strategy and the Requirements for Net Zero Delivery

A WEF Membership Prospectus for the 2021-22 political year is available for download below.
