Talk live with Christiana Figueres about the role of business innovation at COP19. Hosted by @ClimateGroup in cooperation with the UN @GlobalCompact, the Twitter Chat will take place Thursday, 7 November at 10:00 EST (16:00 CET). Tag your questions to @CFigueres with #C4CBiz
As we approach COP19, we need leaders like you to "show you care" and are ready to help address the climate challenge. Join our movement and encourage others to show they care. Please share our campaign through social media, on your website, or in your email signature.
Many low-carbon technologies require new systems-oriented business models distinct from the core models that companies operate today. At the Business Forum, The Climate Group’s Unlocking the Value in Low-Carbon Innovation session will bring together business and Government leaders to share experiences on successful low-carbon innovations from a systems perspective, explore how these innovations are driving corporate strategy, and examine the political conditions needed to supports their large-scale uptake. Join us.
The Forum aims to use as little paper as possible - this means almost no publications, agendas and flyers! Instead, the Forum will use a customized application allowing participants to easily navigate the sessions, speakers, materials and much more. In the days before the Forum, participants will receive directions for accessing the application on their own device (e.g., iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, Android). Stay tuned for more details!
Visit the Caring for Climate website to learn more about upcoming engagement opportunities.
