Top places to park at the upcoming COP26 conference: Glasgow’s most anticipated climate summit of the year

Sustainability is at the core of COP26 — the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference — coming to Glasgow on Sunday. From a carefully curated program of activists and thought leaders to operational details like using green suppliers, the summit has taken every measure possible to stick to its mission.

Attendees will do their best to stick to these goals, too. One of the ways they can stay true to the mandate is by choosing smart travel options like carpooling, trains and pre-booked parking options to reduce time in the car.
