RMI at COP

More than two dozen RMI experts will head to Glasgow for the first two weeks of November to attend the UN Climate Change Conference, or COP26—and all of us will be carrying forth a message of hope. That’s because whatever happens at COP, we know at RMI that transformative change is technically feasible, economically viable, and already underway thanks to the leadership of non-state actors, communities, and cities around the world.

Over the next 14 days, we will showcase the change RMI is helping to drive across the entire energy system. From green hydrogen to fueling an equitable energy transition in the Global South to cleaning up the hardest-to-abate sectors, we know this is an inflection point for our mission to deliver a clean, prosperous, zero-carbon future for all.

RMI
