Whether you’re a business leader, climate expert, environmental professional, youth activist, or just someone with a passion for all things sustainability and climate action – this podcast is for you! COP26 Covered podcast brings you everything you need to know from each day of the crucial climate talks, wrapped up into 30-minute episodes.


For our debut episode – recorded from edie’s new-look offices in West Sussex – Luke, Matt and Sarah begin with a game of  “good COP/bad COP” before sharing what they’re most looking forward to about the summit, from high-level sessions about carbon pricing and climate finance, to the food, drink and culture that Glasgow has to offer. 

COP26 Covered is produced in association with edie’s headline COP26 content partner O2. The daily show is a spin-off from edie’s long-running Sustainable Business Covered podcast show, which is taking a brief hiatus for the duration of COP26 – but will be back with a fresh look and feel later in November.

Upcoming episodes of COP26 Covered will feature round-ups, special guests, listener quizzes and more – all available to listen and subscribe to, for free, right here on along with all major podcasting platforms:  

COP26 Covered will be broadcast from various locations around the city – including the edie team’s no-frills AirBnB – with episodes airing around 5pm each day.

The COP26 Covered podcast is available to listen to on iTunes and Spotify, or bookmark this page to see the full list of podcast episodes as they appear.
