FICCI announce Business and Climate Summit in New Delhi
FICCI will be organizing the third edition of the Business and Climate Summit (BCS) which will be held at Hotel Le Meridien in New Delhi, on August 31 and September 1, 2017
The Business and Climate Summit (BCS) is a high-level annual forum convening global business leaders with solutions for taking on the climate challenge. BCS has travelled from one destination to another – Paris (2015) and London (2016) – building partnerships needed to accelerate the low carbon transition.
FICCI along with its national and international partners will bring together a large international audience encompassing diverse set of corporate leaders, high-level representatives of governments, policymakers, leading think-tanks, international agencies, climate negotiators and the media from around the world to this important gathering.
The Business & Climate Summit is the leading annual forum for businesses, investors and policymakers on climate action. It is where business and governments come together to agree on a roadmap for reaching net zero emissions over the next half century. It demonstrates how low carbon strategies are good for business and good for growth – and builds the partnerships needed to scale up and accelerate the low carbon transition.
In the aftermath of the Paris Agreement we are on an irreversible path to a net zero carbon economy. However, to keep the average global temperature increase well below two degrees, we must act faster and more decisively than ever. It’s no longer just about commitments, it’s about real climate action.
Business holds the key to meeting global carbon reduction targets; and collaboration between business and government is critical to success. Forward thinking companies with climate change at the heart of their business strategies will reap the benefits of high return investments while those that don’t will face greater risks – from policy, investors and climate change itself.
The Business & Climate Summit will bring together leaders from business, government and finance to deliver real climate action. Building on the overwhelming success of last year’s event which boasted some of the world’s most influential CEOs and policymakers, the Summit will set out a roadmap for how business, in the short, medium and long term, can take advantage of a swift transition to the net zero carbon economy.
