You’ve probably heard the term COP26 flying around a lot lately. It stands for the 26th Conference of the Parties – but there’ll be no pass the parcel. Every year, world leaders get together to discuss a united, global response to the climate crisis. This year it’s being hosted in Glasgow.
And the responsibility doesn’t just stop at politicians – businesses need to do their bit too. That’s why we’ve stepped up our efforts, becoming carbon neutral this year and have a plan in place to be Net Zero by 2030.
