LONDON: Join The Climate Group for a webinar on November 12 at 11am New York time/4pm London time, to discuss the results of the latest edition of the GlobeScan/SustainAbility Survey Survey (GSS), which asked leading businesses and sustainability experts their thoughts and expectations on climate change and COP21.

GSS is one the longest-running expert surveys on sustainability-related topics of its kind. In the latest report, produced and presented in partnership with The Climate Group, the viewpoints of over 600 global sustainability experts are analyzed. The participants answered a range of questions including:

  • How confident are the experts that the COP21 meeting will result in a binding international agreement?
  • Which institutions have made the largest contribution to advance solutions on climate change in recent years? What will be the private sector’s role in the implementation of the post-Paris framework?
  • Which companies have gained the widest recognition for their leadership on climate change? What are the factors and corporate strategies driving their perceived leadership?

Join us for a presentation of survey findings and a lively discussion with Mark Lee, Executive Director, SustainAbility, Chris Coulter, Co-CEO, GlobeScan and Ben Ferrari, Director of Partnerships, The Climate Group, as well as corporate leaders.

Ben Ferrari comments: "While confidence in success at COP21 will undoubtedly be up and down across sectors and regions, corporate members of The Climate Group have long expressed their unwavering confidence in the global low carbon economy - which goes far beyond Paris. Having witnessed innovations in clean technology and climate policy gather momentum over the past years, the private sector is now investing heavily in low carbon activities.

"This shift is most evident through initiatives such as RE100, where the world's most influential companies are committing to set 100% renewable targets. These big household names are not only getting recognition for their leadership on climate change but benefiting from impressive cost savings. In short, business will charge ahead to a cleaner economy no matter what happens at COP21, because CEOs are confident the future will be low carbon."
