Climate Chamber Mission | Glasgow Chamber of Commerce

Climate Chamber Mission

Hosted by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, the Climate Chamber Mission is a unique hybrid two-day international trade and knowledge exchange mission which will be held during COP26 on Tuesday 2 - Wednesday 3 November 2021 in Glasgow.

What is the Climate Chamber Mission?

A business leadership project to aid the delivery of ambitious sustainability and climate targets, the mission is a must-attend for successful businesses in targeted territories which are seeking to build international partnerships.

The mission is designed to support businesses to learn, trade and connect.

Participants will have the opportunity to identify new revenues, whilst collaborating together on new markets, product ideas, cost-savings and prepare for likely changes in governmental regulations. All delegates will receive business to business meetings with fellow attendees and will be invited to join prominent keynote speakers, bespoke expert forums, networking with peers and, for those in Glasgow, site visits and an evening reception on the 2 November.

Leif Nordhus, CEO, Circular Norway said:

“The transition to a circular economy is essential to fight climate breakdown. The Climate Chamber Mission during COP26 provides a unique opportunity for Circular Norway to mobilize a coalition of Norwegian companies to build momentum and accelerate actions towards the goals of the Paris Agreement.”

Ainsley Mann, Scottish Trade Envoy to Indonesia said:

“I have long held the belief that COP 26 offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for Scottish businesses to engage with companies from all over the World to meet and discuss collaboration opportunities to contribute to net zero objectives. I am very excited about the rapid take up by Indonesian businesses to join this initiative which I believe will serve as a tremendous catalyst for many productive partnerships going forward.”

Fahmida Bangert, VP of Sustainability, ITRenew said:

“Reaching sustainability and climate targets takes the open exchange of information, collective action and practical, actionable solutions. For more than a decade, that combination has been ITRenew’s focus. From circular economic industry blueprints to sustainably sourced technology that’s decarbonizing the IT hardware sector, we’re committed to making global change both environmentally and financially beneficial. I look forward to sharing, collaborating, and joining in some exciting conversations at the 2021 Climate Chamber Mission.”

Toby McCartney, CEO, MacRebur said:

“If we are to stop climate change in its tracks and reach net-zero targets, we need to work together in order to create long-term, sustainable solutions. This is why I’m looking forward to being involved with Glasgow Chamber of Commerce’s Climate Chamber Mission, building relationships with like-minded, sustainable companies from across the world, as well as closer to home, that place real importance on delivering climate targets.” 


Alex Altmann, Chairman, British Chamber of Commerce in Germany for Scotland and Northern England said:

“It is mankind’s mission to avoid climate catastrophe by changing the way we live. COP26 offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for businesses to present their innovative products that can help to mitigate climate change. We invite our most innovative clean tech companies to come to Glasgow in November and use COP26 as a platform to present, share and learn from each other.”
