Global Climate Action for a 1.5°C Future

The growing momentum of Business Ambition for 1.5°C Campaign – currently counting more than 270 companies – and the CEO statement “Uniting Business and Governments to Recover Better” sends strong signals from Business to Governments that climate ambition remains on top of the agenda for the private sector. As part of a series of key milestones in the lead up to COP26, this session showcases visionary leaders, looks at ways of mainstreaming a 1.5°C trajectory and explores ways for Business and Governments to ramp up efforts to recover better together.

The event takes place as a session of "Uniting Business LIVE", the UN Global Compact's special event from 21 to 23 September marking the opening of the 75th session of the UN General Assembly, and virtually convening leaders from business, Government and civil society to showcase their commitment to the UN’s mission.
