Press Briefing on the Impact of the Paris Climate Agreement on Business and Investors

22 April, UN Headquarters in New York


The Paris Climate Agreement sent a clear signal that the future of the global economy will be powered by low-carbon, climate-smart growth. Decarbonizing the economy is not only the responsible thing for the private sector to do, it also makes clear business sense. The press briefing will highlight how the Paris Climate Agreement has already begun to impact private sector operations and investments, demonstrating that climate action can improve performance, leverage new market opportunities, and be a gateway to growth and innovation.
