Izzo From COP26: 'There Is Clear Momentum Internationally to Do More'

Public Service Enterprise Group Chairman and CEO Ralph Izzo, long a thought leader on climate change and taking action to fight it, is pleased at what he is seeing at the global Convention of Climate Change — better known as COP26 — sponsored by the United Nations in Glasgow, Scotland.
“There is clear momentum building internationally to do more,” he told ROI-NJ. “Countries are here boasting about their efforts, which suggests national pride in taking action even though so much more needs to be done.”
Izzo, who will be on panels Monday and Tuesday (see details here), said the fact the conference is missing two of the world’s biggest offenders — Russia and China — does not take away from the definitive progress being made.
