The En+ Group welcomed US Secretary John Kerry as guest of honour to its pre-COP26 reception at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
The En+ Group, the world’s largest producer of low carbon aluminium and biggest private sector hydro-power business and the first in its sector to adopt a Net Zero target, welcomed US Secretary John Kerry as guest of honour to its pre-COP26 reception at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London on Wednesday.
Secretary Kerry, who joined via video from Washington DC, praised the work of COP President Alok Sharma, recognised the leadership of En+ Executive Chairman Lord Barker in the global aluminium sector and called on the private sector more broadly to play a major role in helping deliver the goals of the forthcoming Climate Change Summit in Glasgow.
Speaking after the reception Lord Barker said: "It was a real honour to be joined by Secretary Kerry. He is not just a very senior member of the new Biden administration but a giant in the fight against climate change. His leadership on this great issue of our time will undoubtedly be crucial in securing a successful outcome in Glasgow next month."
