09/20/17 – Climate Breakfast #7 | Carbon Neutrality at the Board Level: Why Now and How? > Official Affiliate Event Climate Week NYC
Carbon neutrality is an effective and impactful framework to drive forward companies’ and organizations’ sustainability strategies. A strategic approach to carbon neutrality allows companies to maintain competitive advantage in the transition to the low carbon economy.
This panel discussion will seek to present how and why private and public sector leaders are using carbon neutrality and most importantly, how to get their boards on board. High-level panelists from private and public sector organizations will discuss their experience and approach with key influencers.

07/06/17 – Climate Breakfast #5 | Different company perspectives from around the world: how to stick to a 2°C target?
On the eve of the next G20 Summit, to be held in Hamburg on 7 and 8 July, and with the next UN Climate Conference, organised by Fiji, also taking place in Germany later this year, Climate Club is bringing together experts, researchers and international business leaders around the issues of the low-carbon economy and the urgent need to hold the rise in global average temperature below the 2°C limit by 2100.
With state climate commitments struggling to achieve the targets set by the Paris Agreement, all the more so since the United States announced its withdrawal from the Agreement, the private sector is taking the lead in deploying concrete actions in the territories, in the knowledge that adaptation and innovation are genuine levers for performance.
This Climate Breakfast will share the viewpoints of speakers committed to the 2°C trajectory in China, North America, Africa and Europe.
What are companies’ priorities for limiting the increase in temperatures to 2°C? What obstaclesdo they encounter? What strategies do they employ and why? How can we ensure that the private sector’s efforts are ambitious enough, and in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

What return on investment can businesses get from a SDG strategy?
