Global leaders are gathering in Glasgow for the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26. This event will be the most important milestone in the global fight against climate change since the Paris Climate Agreement was signed in 2015.
In the six years that have passed since the Paris Agreement was reached, it is fair to say that results have been mixed. While significant progress towards cutting emissions has been made, the pace of this change is far behind what is needed to avoid catastrophic climate change becoming a reality.

Accelerating to Net Zero
COP26 is the moment to accelerate our efforts to achieve net zero by 2050. We can transform and future-proof our economies for the better by combining digitalization with decarbonization.
Enabling Net Zero
Digital services are a key enabler of decarbonization, helping organizations digitalize and evolve, embedding decarbonization into their operations and processes that equip them for a low carbon world.
Expanding Net Zero Action
Businesses cannot just reduce the carbon footprint generated by their own immediate activities, organisations large and small must utilize innovative technologies to reduce emissions generated throughout their value chains.
Toward a Net Zero Future
Achieving net zero means fundamentally transforming economies and industries, something which can only be achieved by deploying new technologies on an unprecedented scale.
