Climate Initiative

The World Economic Forum Climate Initiative provides a global platform to help raise ambition and accelerate climate action. Public and private sector collaboration is essential to create a marketplace that will enable dramatic reductions in emissions and build resilience.

The Climate Initiative supports two important communities to help drive progress on climate action:

Friends of Climate Action: A multi-stakeholder platform that brings together a range of organizations working with businesses, investors, cities, civil society, states and regions and to collaborate and help deliver increased ambition on global climate action.

Alliance of CEO Climate Leaders: A global network of chief executive officers who see the business benefits of bold and proactive action to ensure a smooth transition to a low-carbon and climate-resilient economy. The group represents business leaders from diverse industry sectors and regions that use their position and influence to drive change.

Priority areas for this group include: implementation of the Financial Stability Board’s Task Force recommendations on Climate-related Financial Disclosures; building support for effective carbon markets; and, transformational change in the energy, mobility and agriculture value chains.
