Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to join Prince Charles at Cop26 event


Amazon founder Jeff Bezos will join the Prince of Wales at a Cop26 event promoting the greening of north Africa, Clarence House has confirmed.

Charles was pictured having an informal chat with the billionaire businessman and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez on Sunday night following the G20 summit in Rome.

It is understood they met to discuss Bezos’s charitable body’s commitment to nature ahead of a Cop26 event in Glasgow promoting the Great Green Wall.

The Great Green Wall is an Africa-led initiative supported by French President Emmanuel Macron which aims to combat desertification by creating a stretch of green and productive landscapes across the width of north Africa.

Charles is co-hosting the session alongside the French leader and his Mauritanian counterpart Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, who is chairman of the Conference of Heads of State and government of the Pan-African Agency of the Great Green Wall.

The prince was instrumental in bringing Macron and Bezos together on the Great Green Wall.

The Amazon founder created his Bezos Earth Fund with a commitment of $10 billion dollars (£7 billion) to be allocated as grants within a decade to fight climate change and protect the environment.
