Johnson will address the opening session of a US-led climate change summit hosted by US President Joe Biden, who has invited dozens of world leaders to the virtual event.

¨The UK has shown that it´s possible to slash emissions while growing the economy, which makes (the) question of reaching net zero not so much technical as political,¨ Johnson is expected to say according to his office.

British prime minister will also alert his counterparts from 40 countries taking part in the two-day event that if they really want to stop climate change, 2021 must be the year to ‘get serious’ to do so.

‘If we actually want to stop climate change, then this must be the year in which we get serious about doing so. Because the 2020s will be remembered either as the decade in which world leaders united to turn the tide, or as a failure.’

Johnson will call on countries to come to the COP Biodiversity Summit in Kunming, China, in October and the COP26 summit in Glasgow, Scotland, in November armed with ambitious targets and the plans required to reach them.
