Climate Week Paris
- 9:00AM, 18 May 2015

The first ever Climate Week Paris takes place from May 18-24, 2015.
The international, high-level gathering organized by The Climate Group, will showcase how business is acting on climate and investing in a low carbon economy, and is crucial to building momentum for the global climate talks that will unfold in the same city this December.
So far 25+ events are confirmed for the week, with the cornerstone event of Climate Week Paris, Business and Climate Summit, demonstrating how current climate solutions being embraced by innovative companies are helping them save money, while curbing energy and emissions.
This bold message will be convened by almost 50 speakers from prominent companies such as L’Oreal, Solvay, Axa, Enel, Edf, Nestle and Unilever. During the two-day summit, they will reinforce their call for action by focusing on changing investment patterns to shape a comprehensive and pragmatic vision of future business.
But because companies also need crucial financial support to make long-term investment decisions for a low carbon future, another key moment at Climate Week Paris is Climate Finance Day, which will push this topic by assessing how investors can tackle climate risks and opportunities.
Opened by Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the meeting will analyze in particular how institutional investors can bring their portfolios in line with the agreed safe global temperature rise limit of 2°Celsius increase above the pre-industrial level.
Paris will be the epicenter of a refreshed drive toward the low carbon economy, building momentum to find a global deal able to open the doors of this new era. Climate Week Paris will be pivotal for sharing evidence of how such a transition is not just the only choice; but the smart one.
