Chamber CEO Participates in ICC Climate Change Virtual Conference
Chamber CEO Wil Pineau, CCE, is participating in the International Chamber of Commerce’s (ICC) virtual conference entitled ‘Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business Forum’ which began on 1st November and concludes on Saturday, 13th November.
The virtual conference is gathering some of the world’s top academic, government and business leaders to discuss the changes needed to stave off the devastating effects of climate change. The ICC, which is the world’s largest business organisation, says there is an urgent need to translate the aspirations and expectations into concrete outcomes. The ‘what’ net zero emissions by 2050 must now come with a how.
The virtual conference enables policy makers and business leaders to provide clarity on structural changes, regulatory frameworks, and financial incentives that businesses will need to deploy billions – even trillions in capital expenditure required to keep the global temperature increase to below 1.5 C and to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
