COP26 Unit

COP26 1

COP26 Unit at FleishmanHillard

FleishmanHillard has a dedicated expert team to advise clients on their communications and public affairs engagement in the lead up to, during and after the COP26 meeting in Glasgow in November 2021.

Our COP26 Unit possesses substantial experience advising and implementing campaigns for clients on a range of environmental issues.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the expectation for corporates, governments and multilateral organisations to act on the climate crisis has never been greater. Our own research shows that nearly 60% of people expect companies to take a stand on climate and environmental issues. This figure increased by 20% from the previous year.

Having been postponed once, COP26 will be a pivotal moment in our collective environmental response and for the UK Government specifically, as it looks to forge a world-leading role in tackling the climate crisis. Spanning five sub-campaigns, the UK’s COP26 Presidency is already focusing on the role of the private sector and its cooperation with governments and multilateral organisations.


Whether it is strategic counsel, guidance on positioning or programme implementation, the unit helps clients to plan and actively reach the public, political stakeholders, business leaders or other audiences in the lead up to, during and after COP26.

Our experienced team work with clients to develop a programme that ensures organisations are in the best position to proactively or reactively communicate on their environmental commitments and actions.

We provide clients with a full range of services, tailored to meet requirements. This includes landscape audits, channel audits, strategy planning, messaging, campaign strategy and positioning sessions through to the implementation of consumer, industry or political engagement campaigns. We help organisations get COP26-ready; whether that’s getting ahead and actively campaigning now or preparing to react later.
