COP26 - What Happened, and What Next?
2021 saw one of the largest climate conferences ever, COP26, take place in Glasgow, Scotland. With the backdrop of increasingly dire forecasts by scientists, shifting industries, protests around the conference, and rising global temperatures, delegates from all over the world came together to explore what could be done to make real change in global environmental policy. Did they succeed? What agreements were reached, which initiatives fell short, and most importantly what's next? Join our speakers Sally Sudworth and Mark Cameron, attendees from the COP26 conference, as we explore these questions and more in a discussion that promises to be as insightful as it is urgent. 


About the speakers

Jeremy is the Managing Director of the Markets Business in Asia Pacific for Jones Lang LaSalle. He is presently the Chairman of the Chamber's Real Estate Committee. Jeremy has lived in HK for over 25 years, and in the property industry for over 31 years. In this time he has been based in Europe, the US but most significantly 23 years in HK. He brings a global perspective to the challenges faced by both occupiers and developers in HK, as China and more broadly APAC competes on the world stage. He believes that his experience and ongoing regional /global interaction with all manner of companies, as they look to set up/ rationalise their operations in Hong Kong and Asia will benefit the Chamber in its mission. He will continue to focus on the concerns/ issues that affect the Chamber members, especially as they relate to the HK Property market but also across the broader HK business environment. He is facilitating this through his active participation in the various property professional bodies of HK, such as the RICS General Practice Board, the HKIS and government relations through the daily course of business.

Mark works with real estate occupiers and investors to develop & implement sustainability strategies towards a Net Zero Carbon future.

About the moderator

As Chairman of the Environment and Energy Committee (2007 – 2016), Anne has assisted in the preparation of submissions to the government on climate change, air and water quality objectives, sustainable development, the CE's policy addresses and participated in the debates on a wide range of topics of interest to Committee Members and the Community at large. She took up the Vice Chair role on the General Committee in 2016 and has continued to support various Committees including Environment and Energy Committee. In recognition of the cross-cutting nature of the smart cities agenda which is being promulgated by HK Government, Anne established the Smart City Forum which draws its membership from across the Chamber with the express intent of sharing information, informing, showing leadership and providing direction in this diverse and fast growing sector of interest, too both the public and private sectors. Her Chamber priorities for 2017/18 include focused lobbying of government in terms of ensuring an integrated approach is adopted for development initiatives and particularly those around the Smart City Agenda, as well as recognition and action on climate change and energy and water resource issues. As Managing Director Greater China and Global Head of Cities at Mott MacDonald Anne has access and engages with city leaders and officials in many parts of the globe and she works as an informal “ambassador” for Hong Kong’s achievements as well as bringing examples of best practice back to Hong Kong.
