Specialist distributors Gold Key Media will be delivering the world’s press to the 30,000 plus delegates attending the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). Working alongside their distribution partners Newsteam, Gold Key will distribute the publications via their fleet of electric vehicles to over 200 venues each day, and any spare copies will be collected and recycled daily too.
Taking place between 31 October and 12 November, COP26 attendees will be staying in Glasgow and Edinburgh. Hotels, conference centres, offices, cafes and travel points will each receive a daily selection of national and international newspapers and magazines. Titles included in this special distribution program will include: The Financial Times, The Economist, New York Times, The Scotsman, TIME, The Times, The Express, China Daily, Guardian Weekly, New Scientist, and The European.
Chris Horn, Founder & Managing Director of Gold Key Media, says: “We’re delighted to be representing this amazing selection of prestigious global publishing brands at COP26. Having covered COP events all over the world during the last ten years we know that this is the big one and by far the most important so far. We hope the assembled world leaders use this opportunity to make firm commitments that we and the planet will benefit from in the years to come.”
Hosted by the UK in partnership with Italy, the summit will bring parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
In looking ahead to the event, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “Securing a brighter future for our children and future generations requires countries to take urgent action at home and abroad to turn the tide on climate change. It is with ambition, courage and collaboration as we approach the crucial COP26 summit in the UK that we can seize this moment together, so we can recover cleaner, rebuild greener and restore our planet.”
