  • Boris Johnson has said that the UK will lead the world in the world in the transition to a net zero economy, saying that climate action cannot be “another victim of coronavirus”.
  • The conference, which will replace the postponed COP26 summit – due to be held in Glasgow next November – will be an opportunity for countries to announce new climate targets.
  • To meet growing electricity demand and the net zero emissions target by 2050, the UK’s wind energy capacity would expand six-fold from 22GW currently to 126GW by 2050.
