On this installment of our series, The Road To COP26 Presented By Octopus Energy, we talk to the Hon James Shaw, New Zealand's Minister for Climate Change, Associate Minister for the Environment (Biodiversity), MP, and Co-Leader of the Green Party. We discuss what he learned from New Zealand's pandemic response and how that should inform global discussions on climate change. We also dig into why COP25 was such a big failure, what could be the biggest obstacles at COP26, and some of the biggest considerations at the intersection of climate action and adaptation and international finance.
