The Class

Why is private sector action important? A recent study has estimated that the private sector can close between 10 to 30 percent of the so-called “Paris Gap” – the difference between the 2015 Paris Agreement and what that agreement will achieve by 2030 if all countries comply with their commitments. So what are the key initiatives and trends that are structuring private sector action? And how can we expect private sector action to evolve in the future? This classroom will look at the steps that Danone – a large global food and drinks company – has taken to combat the impacts of climate change.
