#Climate Change


In advance of COP21 in Paris this December, more than 150 countries have brought forward national climate targets and policies for the Paris agreement, called “Intended Nationally Determined Contributions,” or INDCs. In the fourth briefing of our webinar series on the climate negotiations, our panel will address the aggregate effect of these commitments, how they reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build climate resilience, and why they matter for business. We will also provide an update from the recently concluded Bonn UN negotiating session.

  • Bernd Hackmann, Program Officer, UNFCCC Secretariat
  • Kevin Rabinovitch, Global Sustainability Director, Mars
  • Reed Schuler, Foreign Affairs Officer, US.. Department of State
