In the latest daily podcast covering the COP26 meetings in Glasgow, Ian Welsh speaks to Mighty Earth founder and CEO Glenn Hurowitz. They react to the leaders’ declaration on forests and land use committing 110 countries to eliminate deforestation by 2030, the first big announcement of the conference – and Hurowitz gives some detail on a new pledge from UK and European supermarket chains not to source meat or dairy linked to deforestation.
In the news round up, detail of the 80-nation pledge to cut methane emissions by 30% this decade. Plus, Colombia’s 30% for nature in 2022 commitment, international collaboration on clean tech standards and policies, and China called out for lack of presence at the meetings, once again.
