The Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business Forum hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce ICC from 1 –13 November 2021 will catalyse peer-to-peer discussions and frank exchanges between business leaders from small, medium-sized and multinational enterprises representing different sectors and jurisdictions; policymakers leading the UN negotiation process as well as local government representatives and UN agency heads.

The ICC Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business Forum – which will be held from 1-13 November 2021 – will bring together a diverse network of over 10,000 participants from the public and private sectors to align their climate ambitions and actions for the next decade.

Featuring partner-hosted sessions from leading businesses, industry associations and non-governmental organisations, including the International Trade Centre and UNICEF, the forum will also help to catalyse coherent policy dialogue on critical climate, energy and environment related issues. Discussion themes include enabling sustainable supply chains, scaling climate finance, leveraging sustainable innovation and developing effective carbon pricing mechanisms.

COP26 Goals

1. Secure global net zero by mid-century and keep 1.5 degrees within reach

Countries are being asked to come forward with ambitious 2030 emissions reductions targets that align with reaching net zero by the middle of the century.

2. Adapt to protect communities and natural habitats

The climate is already changing and it will continue to change even as we reduce emissions, with devastating effects.

3. Mobilise finance

To deliver on our first two goals, developed countries must make good on their promise to mobilise at least $100bn in climate finance per year by 2020.

International financial institutions must play their part and we need work towards unleashing the trillions in private and public sector finance required to secure global net zero.

4. Work together to deliver

We can only rise to the challenges of the climate crisis by working together.

At COP26 we must:

  • finalise the Paris Rulebook (the detailed rules that make the Paris Agreement operational)
  • accelerate action to tackle the climate crisis through collaboration between governments, businesses and civil society.
