Business Ambition for 1.5 C: Uniting Business to Recover Better



In a time of global uncertainty, ambitious climate action is as urgent as ever. The COVID-19 pandemic is profoundly deepening existing inequalities and threatens to reverse progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. At the same time, the world continues to face a global climate emergency challenging both humankind and livelihoods.

Enrol in this UN Global Compact Academy session will open with launching "Uniting Business to Recover Better: A joint statement from companies in Science Based Targets initiative and Business Ambition for 1.5 C".

Session attendees will learn how a better recovery reduces vulnerability to future disasters and builds community resilience to address physical, social, environmental and economic shocks. A better recovery will also give low-carbon investments and infrastructure a chance to better meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and the SDGs.

For responsible business, it is crucial that long-term solutions and recovery efforts define the company vision, policies and strategies for environmental responsibility and the climate emergency. This requires continued and urgent transition to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions well before 2050.

Join this session to learn how:
- Societies and economies can recover better from the COVID-19 and the climate crisis to achieve the Paris Agreement and the SDGs
- Business leaders take action to tackle both emergencies
- Governments and business can work together to create the world we want.
