The government has said the event would be the largest summit ever hosted in the UK, with as many as 200 world leaders expected on the final weekend.

Claire Perry, UK nominated president for COP26, said:

"In 2020, world leaders will come together to discuss how to tackle climate change on a global scale - and where better to do so than Glasgow, one of the UK's most sustainable cities with a great track record for hosting high-profile international events."

The Scottish government's Climate Change Secretary Roseanna Cunningham said:

“Scotland was one of the first countries in the world to acknowledge the global climate emergency and the Scottish government has introduced the toughest targets in the UK to ensure our action matches the scale of our climate ambitions.”

"We look forward to working collaboratively with partners to deliver an ambitious and effective conference that ensures Scotland plays a leading role to help promote the increased global effort to tackle climate change."

At the same time, Scotland has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to net-zero by 2045, five years ahead of the UK government's target.
