Identity will work with the UK Government to deliver the 26th session of the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26).

Following a competitive tender process, the agency will deliver the conference in Scotland on behalf of the UK Government. Fresh from delivering the G7 Summit in Cornwall, Identity will deliver a sustainable event in Glasgow.

Michael Gietzen, managing director of Identity, said: “COP26 is a hugely important international event focusing on action to tackle climate change. It will attract worldwide media attention while hosting international heads of state, along with campaigners and climate experts. We are delighted to have been chosen and trusted to deliver this very high-profile event.”

The 12-day vital climate talks, postponed since 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, will take place at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC), kicking off on November 1.

Delegates, including heads of state, climate experts and negotiators will come together at COP26 to agree coordinated action to tackle climate change.

Janet Dodd, director of live events at Identity, said: “We are honoured and proud to be the agency of choice to deliver this critical conference and to be supporting the government in uniting the world to tackle climate change.  At Identity we are determined to do everything we can to combat climate change and in pursuit of this we have a dedicated team who focus on helping us achieve our vision. This team will be integral in making sure that COP26 is the most sustainable one to date. We are delighted that we will once again be working with the teams at the Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office and Cabinet Office, and are looking forward to working with them to deliver an event that will really make a difference.”
