The make-or-break issue for COP26 and for the world’s ability to limit global warming as agreed in the Paris Agreement is the resetting of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and their common timeframes. With current contributions actually amounting to a sizeable increase in global greenhouse emissions by 2030, the pressure will be on governments and, ultimately, businesses, to take more decisive action in the transition to net zero.

We discuss what might be in store for NDCs at next week's landmark summit, and the implications for businesses.
