In Our Sights: a Signed Climate Commitment in Paris

A TriplePundit Series in Partnership with Novozymes

This fall, all eyes are on the city of Paris, which will host this December’s COP21, widely expected to be our last chance to get a global commitment to halt climate change. While the UN talks themselves will be crowded with policymakers and state representatives, in the intervening months, there will be many upcoming opportunities for the business community to get involved. In the run-up to COP21 we’ll be hosting a series of articles on the history of the talks, ideal outcomes, individual commitments as they develop and best practices for companies who want to participate.

Alongside the series, we’ll be hosting a 24/7 conversation on Twitter at #GoParis to share news, ideas and updates on how businesses can get involved. Join the conversation! We’ll be listening.
