Nordic Discussion Series: Sensitive climate topics

Af UN Global Compact Network Denmark
30.04.2024, kl. 11.26


The Nordic networks of the UN Global Compact are hosting an interactive discussion series on sensitive climate topics. We aim to explore the complexities and credibility of three topical questions in the area of climate action; market-based mechanisms, avoided emissions, and beyond value chain mitigation. The purpose is to provide an opportunity for dialogue and collaboration between standard- and agenda-setting organizations and forward-thinking companies, and to support companies in finding their paths towards net-zero emissions.

Please send your questions to the speakers when you register. The discussion will be shaped based on these inputs.

These webinars are for UN Global Compact participating companies only and will be hosted under the Chatham House rule.
