The UK Prime Minister’s UN Speech: Four Priority Areas

On 22 September 2021, the UK Prime Minister outlined in his UN General Assembly speech the four key areas that must be prioritised at the November COP26 environmental summit in Glasgow. These areas are ‘coal, cars, cash and trees’.

ClientEarth has engaged across these four areas in its UK and international work and would urge UK parliamentarians to use their platforms to amplify the message to act in these four key areas to both the government and beyond, ahead of the UK’s hosting of the COP26 meeting.

This November will shine an international spotlight on the UK’s leadership on tackling climate change, and provide a rare chance for the government to make its ambition for a green recovery post-COVID a reality.
