World Business Summit on Climate Change

Six months before the UN climate conference (COP15) in Copenhagen, the World Business Summit on Climate Change will bring together business with the world's top scientists, economists, civil society, media leaders, government representatives and other leading thinkers to put forward recommendations for the next international framework on climate change.

The event is convened by the Copenhagen Climate Council in close collaboration with the Danish government, {theclimategroup}, the World Economic Forum, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, the UN Global Compact and the 3C Initiative. As a co-organizer and member of the Steering Committee, {theclimategroup} is actively involved in the official agenda. Steve Howard, CEO of The Climate Group, will chair one of the plenary sessions on Day Two of the event. The Climate Group is also facilitating the working stream on carbon markets.

The summit is one of the biggest events focusing on the post-2012 international climate agreement to be decided on in Copenhagen in December this year. It is expected to send a strong message from the business community to the world (in particular political decision makers) in favour of an ambitious agreement. The summit is being organized in close collaboration with the Danish government - host of the United Nations Climate Change Conference in 2009.

The results of the World Business Summit on Climate Change will be presented to the Danish government, host of COP15, and to world leaders negotiating the terms of the next international climate treaty.

Attendance to the WBSCC is upon invitation only. The chief executives of all Caring for Climate companies are invited to attend the World Business Summit on Climate Change.
