Climate & Energy

Combating climate change and transforming the energy system are core challenges on the path to a sustainable future for business, society and the environment. The Paris Agreement has sent a decisive and global signal that the start of the transition to a thriving, clean economy is inevitable, irreversible and irresistible.

Our Climate & Energy Cluster facilitates interaction on cutting-edge climate and energy topics between WBCSD members, their peers and stakeholders as they address critical industry issues and share best practices and solutions.

How we are meeting the challenge

Through Action2020 and the Low Carbon Technology Partnerships initiative (LCTPi), we focus on concrete and scalable business actions. Each solution area contributes to the science-based societal goal of limiting global temperature rise to between 1.5 - 2°C above pre-industrial levels.

Highlights

Low Carbon Technology Partnerships initiative

With a solid framework and clear agenda, LCTPi is a unique, action-oriented program that brings together companies and partners to accelerate the development of low-carbon technology solutions to stay below the 2°C ceiling.

below50

below50 is a global collaboration that brings together the entire value chain for sustainable fuels – that is, fuels that produce at least 50% less CO2 emissions than conventional fossil fuels.

COP22 Low-Emissions Solutions Conference

The COP22 Low-Emissions Solutions Conference is a direct follow-up to the most important commitments in the Paris Agreement. The conference will help nations in the technical preparations for their Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and Low-Emission Development Strategy (LEDS).
