The clock is ticking to make the changes needed to stave off the devastating effects of climate change, and there is an urgent need to translate the aspirations and expectations into concrete outcomes. The "what" – net-zero emissions by 2050 – must now come with a "how.” Policymakers have it in their hands to provide clarity on structural changes, regulatory frameworks and financial incentives that businesses need in order to deploy the billions – even trillions in capital expenditure required to keep the global temperature increase to below 1.5°C and to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.

The Make Climate Action Everyone’s Business Forum hosted by the International Chamber of Commerce from 1 –13 November 2021 will catalyse peer-to-peer discussions and frank exchanges between business leaders from small, medium-sized and multinational enterprises representing different sectors and jurisdictions; policymakers leading the UN negotiation process as well as local government representatives and UN agency heads.

This fully virtual Forum aims to bring together 10,000+ participants from over 100 countries and will be organised around five key themes, focusing on critical issues to consider when developing the necessary regulatory frameworks and incentives needed to enable rapid decarbonisation of the global economy.

The platform aims to mimic an in-person experience, facilitating networking, prescheduling meetings, closed door substantive discussions (including BINGO briefings) and plenary sessions. Should circumstances permit, hybrid and in-person elements will also be developed at the COP 26 official venue.
