This November, the global United Nations climate change conference known as COP26 will take place in Glasgow. With the UK hosting the conference, we need the Government to take the lead through bold climate action.
At the 2015 COP summit in Paris, countries agreed to limit global warming to less than 2°C above pre-industrial levels and to aim for 1.5°C. Each country committed to national plans setting out how they would reduce their emissions, known as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).
Each country will bring their updated plans (NDCs) for reducing emissions and combatting climate change to COP26. But so far, the NDCs have fallen far short of the mark in reaching the 1.5°C target. COP26 needs to be the moment that governments commit to going further to secure a safer future for the planet and for us all.

Soils store more carbon than the atmosphere and all of the world’s plants and forests combined, with nearly 10 billion tonnes of carbon stored in UK soils alone!
Our food and farming system can help resolve the climate, nature, and health crises, but only if we work with nature, not against it.
• Help mitigate climate change - healthy soils store more carbon and help prevent flooding and droughts
• Work in balance with nature and wildlife - helping to build a resilient food system
• Put communities and farmers in the driving seat - farming is adapted to suit the local area, helping it thrive
We’re putting farmers in the driving seat through our Innovative Farmers programme. We work with farmers on the ground to develop lasting solutions for a more resilient farming future.
We’re showing what’s possible with our Food for Life programme. We work with schools, hospitals, universities and caterers to serve over 2 million healthy, nutritious meals a day, reconnecting people with where their food comes from.
We’ve helped develop the National Food Strategy, which supports nature-friendly farming as well as a drive towards healthier more sustainable food in schools and hospitals.
We’re campaigning for an end to deforestation in UK supply chains. We need to move from industrial farming that feeds animals imported soya crops, to a nature-friendly farming future.
We’re a partner of the Glasgow Food and Climate declaration. The declaration will be presented at COP26 and places sustainable, local food systems at the heart of the response to the climate crisis.
The movement towards a world with good health, in balance with nature and a safe climate is growing and you can be a part of it. Whether you’re already doing some great things, or aren’t sure where to start, visit our hub to make your pledge for a better future today.
