At the launch of Climate Week NYC we brought together our most senior stakeholders to celebrate climate action and announce new work and achievements.  

It’s widely accepted that the world needs to reach net zero by 2050. To do that, we know that we need to halve emissions in the 2020s, which is why the Climate Group has dubbed it the Climate Decade. But what do we need to see happen in the following days, weeks and months? Our speakers explore what the 2020s needs to look like for us to deliver for 2030. 

In addition, in the last two years, we’ve seen businesses and governments take up the language of a just transition – but what definitions are they using, and how are they delivering against it? Leaders in the space will share their thoughts and research.
