The world’s most powerful chief executive officers and managing directors are meeting in Copenhagen 24-26 May, (See Che Wall’s report in Spinifex) ahead of the world’s most powerful climate change politicians meeting also meeting in Copenhagen in December this year, to decide how business can deliver the tools to head off serious climate change. Among them will be the CEOs, managing directors or equivalent, of companies such as Merrill Lynch in the UK, Saatchi & Saatchi in the US, Ove Arup in Hong Kong, Ericsson and Fujitsu. You can choose to be invited if you are a CEO.
Here is what Danish Climate and Energy Minister Connie Hedegaard says: “We, the politicians of the world, have a responsibility to reach a truly global climate change agreement in Copenhagen in December 2009. But it is the business society that can deliver the tools to turn our vision into reality. Businesses can provide the clever solutions to make it possible to live in a both modern and sustainable society.”
The results of the World Business Summit on Climate Change will be presented to the Danish government, host of COP15, and to world leaders negotiating the terms of the next international climate treaty. Contact: https://www.copenhagenclimatecouncil.com/world-business-summit/participants.html
