The virtual roundtable brought together academics and practitioners to discuss the current practice of corporate disclosure and lobbying in relation to climate change. Across three short panels the results of recently completed research projects on corporate disclosure of climate risk and corporate climate lobbying before the UK parliament were presented, alongside the insights of practitioners from business and civil society. All three panels ended with a Q+A session in which the audience were invited to join a discussion about how we move current corporate practice in these areas to best practice.
The UK hosted the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow from 31 October – 12 November 2021. The meeting brought countries together to work towards achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
