Webinar: Transformative city-business partnerships

Cities is where the transition to a sustainable world will be lost or won, as they account for more than 70% of global CO2 emissions, with 80% of urban residents exposed to air pollution levels exceeding WHO limits, and more than 1bn people living in slums.
Cities are developing bold, long-term strategies to address climate change – yet they cannot act alone and will require considerable private sector support in order to achieve their climate goals, with some cities controlling as little as 4% of their own carbon emissions. City-business partnerships have great potential to reduce emissions on a larger scale than cities could manage alone, and to increase resilience through positive environmental impact as well as the creation of wider social and economic benefits.

This event will put the spotlight on the City-Business Climate Alliance (CBCA), which aims at accelerating climate action through city-business collaboration. C40 Cities, CDP and WBCSD have created this two-tier network of cities and businesses to create systemic change through joint climate action.
