4. SOUNDBITE (English) Alok Sharma, COP26 President:
“Today, we are publishing the Global Coal to Clean Power Transition Statement. A commitment to end coal investment. To scale up clean power. To make a just transition and phase out coal in the 2030s in major economies, and in the 2040s elsewhere. It has 77 signatories, including 46 countries such as Poland, Vietnam and Chile; 23 of which are making commitments on ending coal for the first time.”

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Alok Sharma, COP26 President:
“Today, we also announce the just transition declaration signed by 14 governments and development banks, because we know that the health and prosperity of people and places must continue to be at the centre of the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy. And you all know that renewables are booming too. Just a couple of days ago here at COP26 we heard Prime Minister Modi commit to generating half of India’s power from renewables by 2030. By then China will have 1200 gigawatts of renewables. And UK offshore wind will support at least 60,000 jobs. All this helps to power the world to net zero. And if I can just say that net zero commitments now cover 90 per cent of global GDP, including countries like Russia, Thailand, and Vietnam. Now that is up from less than 30 per cent when we took on the COP Presidency.”

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Alok Sharma, COP26 President:
“I do believe we’re getting to a point where we consign coal power to history. A brighter future comes ever closer. A future of cleaner air, cheaper power, and good green jobs. But we must continue to work together over this vital decade to finish that job. The prize is to keep the Paris temperature goal within reach.”
