- 12:00AM, 06 December 2010
- Cancun, Mexico
As countries meet in Cancun for high-level UN climate talks (COP16), action to cut greenhouse gas emissions is gathering momentum. Governments at all levels are accelerating smart, new climate policies. Similarly, companies are developing clean technologies and services because it makes good business sense to do so.
The world’s transition to a low carbon economy will come about through a clean industrial revolution led by business and political leaders. The Climate Leaders Summit 2010, on December 6-8 (view information for Day 2 and Day 3), will focus on initiatives and actions leaders are taking to bring about a ‘Clean Revolution’ – one that will create economic growth, jobs and secure a smarter, more prosperous future for all.
Members of The Climate Group’s international alliance of business, cities, states and regions will showcase their roles in the Clean Revolution. The Climate Group is delighted that this year’s Climate Leaders Summit will have a special focus on sub-national government leadership and action in China.
