The World Climate Summit 2013 will take place alongside the 19th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC and the 9th session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (COP19). See attached further information.

For the first time this year, World Climate Ltd and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development are collaborating to provide a complementary series of activities over two days alongside the 19th annual UN Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP) and create the largest business platform for debate and action, being CLIMATE SOLUTIONS 2013.

These two days bring together business, global institutions and government leaders to discuss solutions, actions and policies to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Warsaw will mark the halfway point from the decisions in Durban to a climate change agreement in Paris in 2015.

The two days’ activities will focus on actions and solutions to climate change:

  • Day 1: The World Climate Summit on The Road to Paris – This day will focus on providing key public and private sector solutions and a business process to complement a Global Deal in Paris. Key drivers discussed will include finance enabling, energy transformation, sustainable innovation and Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).
  • Day 2: The WBCSD Business Day on Climate Solutions in Action – Focused on Big Ideas from business to contribute to closing the ambition gap and longer-term solutions, and the convergence of activities and agendas which will be critical for a successful climate change agreement in 2015.
