Building A Net Zero Economy By 2050
A series of five roundtable discussions in the U.S. and Europe, each gathering companies from a range of industries which are already taking steps to significantly lower emissions and contribute to sustainable development.
The roundtables are part of the Talanoa Dialogue, set up by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to provide a unique opportunity for civil society and the private sector to contribute their views into the previously government-dominated climate negotiations.
The two Dialogues to-date – in San Francisco and London – brought together 15 companies with collective revenues totalling over $500bn from creative industries, energy, finance, FMCG, professional services and technology. It had wide-ranging discussions that resulted in some strong new ideas for ambitious climate action.
Through a frank and open conversation with other companies, it is exploring what the future of private sector climate action and leadership look like under the Paris Agreement and the role of business in achieving net zero carbon emissions. It thinks that the private sector has the desire, means, and ability to deliver urgent climate action and it is offering selected clients and partners the opportunity to share their perspectives.
