The UN Global Compact together with UN Environment and UNFCCC secretariat will convene the seventh annual High-Level Meeting on Climate Change at COP 25/CMP 15 inviting senior executives of business, industry, finance, civil society, the United Nations and Government to ramp up corporate action. This year the gathering will build on the political momentum of the UN Climate Action Summit and draw on the achievements thus far of the “Business Ambition for 1.5°C – Our Only Future” campaign and the “UN Asset-owner Alliance”. The meeting serves as a high-level stakeholder consultation – with a focus on private sector engagement – to inform and articulate the role business and investors can play as a springboard to 2020 and the decade of action. It will help identify key levers of action necessary to dramatically reduce emissions to reach net-zero and resilient development by mid-century, by giving an outlook on 2020 priorities accelerating local climate action to help increase corporate support for enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions and the Sustainable Development Goals.
The meeting is by invitation only.
