Alok Sharma – 2021 Comments on Vatican City Visit

The comments made by Alok Sharma, the COP26 President, on 10 May 2021.

A cross-society approach is essential if we are to achieve the Paris Agreement goal of keeping global warming to less than 1.5 degrees alive.

Faith leaders are an integral part of this approach and I was honoured to visit Vatican City to discuss this.

His Holiness, Pope Francis, has committed the Vatican State to a net zero future and I hope his leadership and moral standing across the world will set a powerful example to others.
