The UN Global Compact together with UN Environment and UNFCCC secretariat will convene the annual High-Level Meeting of Caring for Climate at COP24/CMP14 inviting senior executives of business and finance, civil society, the UN and Governments to identify key levers of action necessary to accelerate low-carbon and resilient development. The meeting serves as a high-level stakeholder consultation – with a focus on private sector engagement – to inform and articulate the ambitious role business can play in the lead up to the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit in 2019.
This gathering will help identify concrete actions, partnerships, and initiatives the private sector can undertake to mobilize greater ambition and stronger leadership to urgently recalibrate to well-below 1.5 Celsius in support of a zero carbon trajectory. A new paper on climate ambition will be presented, inspiring bold government policies and private sector leadership through ‚ambition loops‘ to help enhance Nationally Determined Contributions and the Sustainable Development Goals.
