Day 6 is Decarbonisation Day at COP27, Sharm el Sheikh
We are edging towards the end of the first week of COP27 with Friday the 11th focusing on decarbonisation as the overriding theme. The decarbonisation opening session was attended by top global energy and climate officials.
A very bright light was shone on the oil and gas industries efforts towards decarbonization and the huge challenges they face in achieving carbon neutral.
Other key conversations involved the built environment which, depending on what source you consult, emit up to 40% of the world’s greenhouse emissions.
A key highlight of the day was President Joe Biden attending COP27 after meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.
