Global Letter

Dear Colleague,

COP26 in November faces an impossibly wide spread of national interests to corral into a unified global  programme. It  has  been  set  up  for  failure  by  the  clash  between  ambition  and  reality  on climate change – with three elements in particular undermining the whole carbon-zero target.

Yours sincerely,


Sir Jeremy Greenstock is Chairman of Gatehouse Advisory Partners Ltd and of Lambert Energy Advisory Ltd, and a Trustee of the NGO Forward Thinking. Sir Jeremy was a career diplomat from 1969 to 2004, ending his career as Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom to the United Nations (1998-2003) and the UK’s Special Envoy for Iraq (2003-04). From 2004 to 2010 he was Director of the Ditchley Foundation, and also a Special Adviser to BP plc; and from 2011 to 2016 he was Chairman of the UN Association-UK.
