#SustyTalk: Countdown to COP26 with The Climate Group’s Sandra Roling

With COP26 less than six months away, edie has launched a new series of videos with high-level speakers, designed to inspire and empower your preparations for the conference. Up next, The Climate Group’s head of EV100 Sandra Roling.


With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, the #SustyTalk video interview series was launched in spring 2020, keeping you connected to the inspirational business leaders who are continuing to drive sustainability and champion climate action from their own homes.

In preparation for COP26, edie has begun interviewing some of the experts in the fields of the Conference’s key themes, including clean energy, climate finance and clean transport. To this latter point, today’s interview is with The Climate Group’s head of EV100 Sandra Roling.

This interview sees Roling providing edie’s senior reporter Sarah George with an update on the growth of the EV100 initiative amid the challenges of Covid-19, outlining how the private sector is collaborating to address key challenges such as vehicle affordabilty, battery range and charging infrastructure. She also explores the role of collaboration between cities, nations, businesses and other groups in accelerating the electric vehicle transition and reshaping transport systems with modal shift in mind.

Roling is speaking at edie’s flagship Countdown to COP26 event on Thursday 20 May, alongside experts from ClientEarth, National Grid, Green Alliance and Centrica Business Solutions. This will be for a panel discussion on clean transport and energy systems.

Keynote speakers include the UK Cabinet Office’s director of partnerships and engagement Matt Toombs and WBCSD director Claire O’Neill, also former UK Energy Minister.

More than 250 business and climate leaders have already registered to attend the event, which forms an integral part of edie’s Countdown to COP26 Festival of digital content and events.
