The climate conversation happening on Twitter continues to accelerate, generating more than 40 million Tweets in 2021 alone. As global leaders convene in Glasgow for #COP26, people around the world are using Twitter to get the latest, connect with the environmental community, and galvanize around pressing climate challenges.
#COP26 event page
We’re committed to elevating the latest, most authoritative information about #COP26. Starting this week, people on Twitter can tap into our global #COP26 event page, featuring resources and commentary from key organizations and environmental experts and the latest #COP26 news. The event page will be localized, available to anyone on Twitter in English, Spanish, Arabic, Portuguese, and Japanese.
We’re rolling out pre-bunks — hubs of credible, authoritative information, available in the Explore tab, Search, and Trends. These pre-bunks will surface reliable, factual context across a range of key themes, like the science backing climate change and global warming realities.
#COP26 hashtags and emoji
People around the world can use #COP26 hashtags and the official #COP26 Twitter emoji to join the conversation, engage with conference participants, and more. To access the exclusive emoji, Tweet #COP26, #RaceToZero #RaceToResilience, or #TogetherForOurPlanet.
Organizations like UNFCCC, an official #COP26 partner, are hosting real-time, global conversations on Twitter. Check out featured Spaces at @Policy and on the official #COP26 event page, set reminders, and join in.
Climate change topic
We know that people use the service to find credible information during events like #COP26, as well as during environmental crises. This year, we rolled out a climate change Topic to make it easy to find personalized conversations about climate change, including Tweets from environmental and sustainability organizations, environmental activists, and scientists. These Tweets will appear in your Home timeline when you follow the Topic.
Keep up with climate change experts and environmental journalists via localized lists, available on the #COP26 Event page.
Twitter’s Climate Commitments
Tackling the climate crisis requires ongoing, meaningful action, and at Twitter, we’re stepping up our own commitments and doing this work out in the open.
Earlier this year, we committed to significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, in partnership with the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi). This ambitious reduction goal, in alignment with the Paris Climate Agreement, is a key component of our net-zero journey. We continue to collaborate with environmental leaders, the scientific community, and industry partners, such as through work with the global We Mean Business coalition and the United Nations’ Race to Zero campaign.
We know there’s more to do. We’ve escalated our efforts to achieve 100% carbon-neutral power sourcing in our current data centers by the end of 2022. We’ve partnered with Cool Effect, a nonprofit organization that helps offset emissions from our data centers and employee travel, to fund green projects around the world. So far, 95% of our global office spaces are “Green Building Certified” with more to come. And, we remain committed to supporting organizations leading the charge, including through Ads for Good grants.
