Holding answer received on 21 October 2019

To date, the Department has largely resourced its preparations for COP26 through the reprioritisation of existing staff. In addition it has recruited seven new staff to work on COP26.

BEIS staff will support a whole of government effort to deliver COP26, led by a new unit in Cabinet Office, where the majority of staff will be located.
