Corporate Climate Leadership: Best practice in the Paris Agreement era

21 September 2017, 1:30pm – 3:00pm
Instituto Cervantes, 211 E 49th St, New York City

Businesses have a crucial role to play in meeting the Paris Agreement. But with so many initiatives underway to influence corporate climate strategies – including Science Based Targets, RE100, deforestation commitments, carbon credits and green bonds – how do they all fit together? And what constitutes best practice for business in the new climate era?

Join Gold Standard and CDP for the launch of new guidelines designed to help sustainability professionals shape their climate strategies for recognition as climate leaders. The session will feature a deep dive on the latest thinking around how business can engage in climate finance, including new programmes for Scope 3 reductions and reporting and new financial instruments.
