Bold climate policy drives decisive business action
The transition to a net-zero economy has begun. It’s achievable and brings significant benefits.
Business advocacy at COP26:
Representing hundreds of businesses, we went to COP26 with three policy-related documents:
- The Open Letter to G20 leaders was signed by almost 800 companies with asks on 1.5ºC alignment, energy and finance.
- The COP26 Asks from Business document details the specific requests for negotiators on behalf of businesses at COP26 and complements.
- A broader set of Policy Asks for Creating a Net-Zero World, called for transformation of the economy across major systems.
We Mean Business Coalition hosted the Business Pavilion for Climate Leadership at COP26 and will be applying to host a pavilion at COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh.
Businesses are calling for bold policy ambition in key areas:
Economies for People and Nature
Now is the time for all countries to commit to the 1.5°C trajectory, translate global goals to policies and deliver climate action. Ensuring a green recovery from COVID-19 will help to drive sustainable economic growth, build resilience and solidarity, and create new jobs as part of a just transition.
