Over 40 countries pledged to refuse fossil fuels at the Climate Change Summit COP26 in Glasgow. Ukraine is among them as The Guardian reported.

It is provided that the signatory countries will gradually abandon the construction of new coal-fired power plants and will no longer invest in this industry. Richer economies promise to do this in the 2030s, and smaller economies in the 2040s.

It is noted that refusal from coal is critical to reduce carbon emissions in the sufficient amount to put the world on track to limit global warming.

“Today marks a milestone moment in our global efforts to tackle climate change, as nations from all corners of the world unite in Glasgow to declare that coal has no part to play in our future power generation. Today’s ambitious commitments made by our international partners demonstrate that the end of coal is in sight,” UK’s business secretary Kwasi Kwarteng stated.
