#Climate Change


The COP21 climate talks this December in Paris are shaping up to achieve significant progress on international and national climate and energy policy. In the run-up to Paris, companies can seize important opportunities to shape the outcome of COP21 by demonstrating strong commitments, providing targeted advice to policymakers, and preparing to act on the likely results.

In this third briefing in a series on climate policy and action, BSR will discuss one of the four pillars of the Paris outcome, the “Action Agenda” where companies, cities and civil society make bold commitments and seize quick wins to reduce emissions and build adaptive capacity. We will also discuss efforts under the UNFCCC to increase pre-2020 ambition under “Workstream 2.”
