The Road to Paris & Beyond


In December 2015,  a new global climate agreement will be negotiated in Paris at the UNFCCC COP 21. This will mark a key moment to shape the post-2020 climate regime. WBCSD is leading business in several key collaborative processes to support an upwards spiral of ambition towards a positive outcome. The transition to a low-carbon economy is the only way to secure sustainable economic growth and prosperity for all. In 2015, the WBCSD will use its Action2020 framework to deliver the Road to Paris and Beyond, which includes:

  • Low Carbon Technology Partnerships Initiative (LCTPi) with IEA and SDSN
  • Business-government dialogues with WBCSD Global Network partners in France, Brazil and India.

LCTPi is a robust business-led contribution to the UNFCCC negotiations and is officially endorsed by the French Presidency and the UNSG. It will explore pathways to scale up action and remove technological barriers, clarify financing needs and formulate clear policy asks for implementation of technologies at scale.

Much remains to be done before Paris and impactful engagement for a net zero emissions society within the century requires real actions on the ground by business and governments.
