COP26: Transatlantic Business Committed to Climate Action


Ahead of the COP26 summit, the representatives of 37 AmChams across Europe and Eurasia have come together and released a joint statement highlighting their commitment to the goals the conference as well as the emissions reductions targets set out by the Paris Agreement. 

The joint statement sets out to deliver three key messages: 

  1. US industry in Europe is committed achieving the objectives of the Paris Agreement;
  2. Industry is already playing a big role in driving innovation towards low carbon technologies and will continue to do so;
  3. International cooperation is essential and transatlantic partners have the potential to lead the global race to net zero.

“We believe that international cooperation is essential to deliver on global climate neutrality objectives. Only through continued shared dialogue between world leaders, from developed to developing countries, from SMEs to global corporations, can we achieve the transition to a carbon-neutral economy that will bring benefits to people’s lives,” they stressed.
