ICC / IPCC Webinar: Climate Science and Institutional Policy

15 Oct 2020

Online English
From 14:00 CEST to 15:30 CEST

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is currently preparing its next comprehensive report entitled Climate Change 2022.

To build on the roundtables co-hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the IPCC in March 2020, this one and a half hour webinar “Climate Science and Institutional Policy: An Introduction to the IPCC and its Reports for Business Leaders” will be an opportunity for the business community to gain key insights into the work of the IPCC and the development of the next report, as well as better understand how business contributions can supp:ort the work of the IPCC. Participants will also have an opportunity to share how their business is using the latest climate science to help shape their corporate strategies.

Key questions:

1. What is the role of the IPCC and what are the key findings resulting from its most recent scientific reports?

2. How is business integrating the IPCC findings into their climate, environmental and sustainability strategies and using them for their long-term planning?

3. What are the opportunities for business to engage in and contribute to the IPCC process?

4. How can the IPCC reports be made more accessible to the business community to support them in developing plans, business strategies, technology pathways, mechanisms and enablers towards a net zero economy?

This webinar “Climate Science and Institutional Policy: An Introduction to the IPCC and its Reports for Business Leaders” was co-hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on 15 October 2020.

We heard from IPCC lead scientists about the latest climate science and what this means for business, as well as from business leaders on how they are already integrating the IPCC findings into their business strategies and how these are informing their long-term planning. We also learnt how business can get involved in the development of the next IPCC report “Climate Change 2022”.

We asked:

  • How business can contribute and engage in the work of the IPCC?
  • How the IPCC's work has influenced companies' climate targets?
  • How companies review and use the IPCC work?
  • What the IPCC could cover in its reports to help companies enhance climate action?
