IMechE and COP26
all our activities collated in one convenient hub
The UK is hosting the United Nations climate change conference, COP26, in November 2021 and the IMechE wants engineers to raise our voice.
Engineering is key to delivering reductions in greenhouse gas emissions to prevent dangerous levels of global warming. COP26 could be a critically important event where the world’s leaders get together and agree new targets for emissions reductions.
This webpage has been created to provide a single hub where our members can find out about all our activities around COP26, the centrepiece of which is a hybrid 2-day conference on 28 - 29 October.
Our objectives for the event are to highlight the role of the IMechE and engineering in addressing climate change, celebrate ongoing member activities, and advocate for positive policy change.
To achieve our objective, we will focus on three themes:
- Energy Transition
- Clean Transport
- Cities and the Built Environment
COP26 takes place in Glasgow from 1 - 12 November 2021.
You can register for the IMechE pre-COP conference on 28 - 29 October using the link below.

The IMechE have created a delivery taskforce, made up of staff and volunteer members, to help make our seminar a success and ensure the voice of engineers is heard during COP26.
The delivery taskforce
Our purpose is to deliver a brilliant campaign for members. The team structure is as follows:
