The Paris Agreement sends a clear signal that the shift to a low-carbon economy is inevitable, and everyone must play their part. To facilitate this transition, CDP and its partners have developed campaigns that seek to highlight and spur meaningful action on tackling climate change from the private sector and sub-national governments.
The 22nd annual Chatham House Climate Change conference will ask how new business models and technological frontiers can drive sustainability and decarbonization as well as provide practical solutions to mitigating and managing climate change. This two-day event will also offer an early opportunity to discuss the implications of the IPCC’s Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5 °C with policymakers, climate scientists, NGOs, business and political leaders. The early rate discount for this conference ends on Friday 31 August. See more and secure your place: https://cht.hm/2LatQ0X Contact: Charlie Burnett Rae | [email protected] | +44 (0)20 7957 5727.
This side-event at the UN General Assembly, which is co-organized by CDP, will be an opportunity to learn more about the relationship between mining and deforestation, see new research findings on forest-smart mining, and get an overview of the New York Declaration on Forests and its Global Platform. It will highlight examples of forest-smart policies, practices and partnerships and build a shared understanding of what changes, innovations, and new initiatives may be useful to accelerate action.
