Climate Chamber Mission

2-3 November 2021


About this event

Hosted by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, the Climate Chamber Mission is a virtual international trade and knowledge exchange event. It aims to connect sustainable and low carbon conscious countries, circular cities and businesses seeking to build international partnerships and deliver on ambitious climate targets.

Providing an opportunity to share sustainable and circular business models as a means of tackling global challenges, over two hundred businesses, across thirteen countries, will come together during the first week of COP26. The Climate Chamber Mission allows organisations to inspire, collaborate and share best practice.

Working at both a country and city level, the Mission will engage with the British Chambers of Commerce Network, as well as expert led Circular Economy organisations in pioneering Circular Cities. Each British Chamber and Circular organisation, will be offered the opportunity to invite up to ten leading businesses to join their Mission delegation.

Who can attend

  • Supported by Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, the British Chamber of Commerce network will seek to invite sustainable, green and/or low carbon organisations. These companies will have strong climate ambitions and are striving to do business without negatively impacting the environment, economy, community or society as a whole.
  • Supported by Circular Glasgow, a Glasgow Chamber of Commerce initiative, Circular Cities will invite organisations who operate with the specific aim of minimising waste and maximising resources. These circular strategies could include long-lasting design, maintenance, repair, reuse, re-manufacturing, recycling and up-cycling.

Across the two days, participating businesses will join inspirational keynote speakers, bespoke expert forums, business to business meetings, networking with peers and site visits, for those in Glasgow.


Mission Themes

Sustainability and Circular Economy themed, the Climate Chamber Mission will focus on the following sectors:

  • Built environment and Construction
  • Events and Conferences
  • Green Finance
  • Fashion and Retail
  • Food and Drink
  • Low carbon and Renewables

Invite only, your host organisation will confirm your participation fee directly. This will provide access to all main stage events, breakout sessions, networking, and business to business meetings between fellow delegates. If companies travel to Glasgow, there will be the opportunity to visit circular and sustainable businesses around the City.

On registration, companies will be asked to create their own ‘online’ profiles, as well as complete a series of questions relating to their international, sustainable and circular ambitions.
