Climate Ambition Initiatives

​Climate change poses an urgent threat. While the global community has been working on climate action for over thirty years, the pace of progress has been unacceptably slow. The world needs to adopt a new paradigm that catalyses industry sectors to take action. Public and private collaboration is essential to dramatically reduce emissions and spur transformative change.

​​In this decisive decade for climate action, the Climate Ambition Team of the World Economic Forum has been established to deliver a net-zero economy.

Climate Ambition Initiatives provide a global platform to raise ambition and accelerate climate action through multi-stakeholder partnerships. 

Hear from Professor Klaus Schwab, the Founder and Chairman of the World Economic Forum, on why 2020 is such an important year for climate action.
