Companies, charities, and Universities at COP26

There have been mixed views and comments about COP26, some saying the pledges will make a real difference and whilst others (and reports) say it's not enough. We've covered the key points from COP26, broken down by each day. We wonder here at Climate vs Change if the participants of COP26 have played a bigger role in the types of pledges, deals, and talks that have come out of COP26? We've processed the provisional UN COP26 registered participants list to see which companies, Universities, climate change activists, charities, and more, attended COP26 in Glasgow, for 12 days in November 2021.

Who attended COP26?

Most notably Prince William, Prime minister Boris Johnson, Joe Biden, and Sir David Attenborough attended COP26. We've seen live streams, videos, and pictures of such people talking at COP26, but here at Climate vs Change, we're keen to find out which influencing companies attended. They estimated around 40,000+ people attended but that's our thing here, showcasing different company climate change promises and actions. Greenwashing or not, we'll for sure keep those to account who promise to hit net-zero by a given date. The main focus is which notable charities and climate change groups attend COP26.

Which Companies attended COP26?

You could argue that companies are always covering their bottom line and we are willing to lobby in order to protect profits. Whilst some businesses class themselves as social enterprises, we do question the hidden motive of some and why they've attended COP26? Many hold huge influence over the global economy with FTSE 100 and (Standard and Poor's 500) S&P 500 companies to be specific. Those companies have huge amounts of wealth and being in line with governments and lobbying their decisions could make real change. Here's a collection of the most notable companies that have attended COP26.
