Despite the acrimony surrounding the UK’s departure from the EU, climate policy remains a significant area where continuing common interests are acknowledged by both sides. As holders of the Presidency for COP 26 in Glasgow, the UK Government needs to work with partners with similarly ambitious climate goals to build momentum towards a successful outcome. Both the UK and the EU need to demonstrate climate leadership in terms of domestic example setting and external diplomatic effort. This Roundtable examines the dynamics at work between the two sides as they affect both the ability to develop and implement ambitious mitigation policies in their own jurisdictions, and internationally in the run up to, and beyond, COP 26.
