When it comes to climate, the spotlights are not waiting for the December COP21 talks to turn toward Paris. Last week, European mayors gathered in Paris to pledge joint action on climate, in May a coalition of international business networks will lead the Business and Climate Summit at UNESCO, and countless activities on climate are popping up every day in the City of Light.
A series of spring events throughout Europe dedicated to business action on climate.
Building on the convergence of efforts in 2015 for a new international climate agreement at the COP21 talks in Paris and the adoption of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, BSR is launching a series of spring events throughout Europe dedicated to business action on climate.
These events will gather the business community ahead of COP21 to drive leadership on climate.
The 44th annual Davos World Economic Forum is taking place this week, bringing together 2,500 of the world’s most powerful business and political leaders to discuss pressing international issues. The spotlight will be focused on Iran, as its President, Hassan Rouhani, seeks investment for his hard-hit, sanctions-laden country; Syria, as its bloody civil war rages on; Europe, as it faces unemployment, inflation, and continued financial vulnerability; and China, as it exerts ever-growing social and economic influence.
