COP26 president Alok Sharma said that the "end of coal is in sight".
He said that the progress made in the last two years "would have seemed a lofty ambition" in 2019, pointing to the G7 countries along with China and South Korea committing to end international coal financing in 2021, reports the BBC.
"We are getting to a point when we can consign coal power to history. we must continue to work together to finish the job on coal," Alok Sharma said.
"A brighter future comes ever closer, a future of cleaner air, cheaper power, and good green jobs," he said, adding that the prize is to keep the Paris temperature goal within reach.
