IGU at the UN Climate Change Conferences (COP)

Climate change is a threat to everyone in the world and it is crucial that we use our resources efficiently and in a sustainable manner to minimise the impact on nature and climate. The UN Climate Change Conferences are the main arena for discussing relevant measures. Natural gas can contribute to a low-carbon economy and therewith to mitigating climate change. For that reason IGU has been present and active at the UN Climate Change Conferences for a number of years now. You can find more information on the activities at the last COP as well as on the COP to come here in this section. If you wish to learn more about the special symposia and side events on the role of gas in the climate change mitigation process at previous COPs, please refer to our history section under About IGU/History.
