Caring for Climate WEBINAR: Responsible Corporate Engagement On Climate Change Policy
July 25, 2013•9 - 10:30am EDT
Caring for Climate was launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in July 2007. The initiative is jointly convened by the United Nations Global Compact, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Caring for Climate endeavors to help prevent a climate change crisis by mobilizing a critical mass of business leaders to implement and recommend climate change solutions and policies.
Ahead of the 19th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC to be held in November 2013 in Warsaw, Poland, Caring for Climate is conducting a study on corporate engagement on climate change policy, together with the World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Ceres and CDP.
This study seeks to help companies evaluate, improve and demonstrate responsible influence on climate change policy, as well as to develop guidance material and recommendations for companies to become responsible corporate climate stewards. Responsible business engagement on climate change policy can help steer more action and commitments from both businesses and policy-makers in support of the climate agenda.
The UN Global Compact, WRI and other partners are hosting webinars on June 20 and July 25 with Caring for Climate signatories and other stakeholders to share updates and invite input on the study.
