USCIB member companies and business groups are in Glasgow, Scotland for the next two weeks (October 31- November 12), bringing their commitment, solutions and advice for a successful United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP26).
In its statement to COP26, USCIB called for a transformative next step in the journey of international cooperation to global net zero and shared prosperity in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
USCIB Trustee and Sustainability Champion Ester Baiget, President and CEO of Novozymes, will join USCIB Senior Vice President Norine Kennedy and other USCIB members at this pivotal international meeting to define coherent and effective policy and market frameworks for an inclusive and sustainable recovery in line with the Paris Agreement.
According to Kennedy, only by working closely with all business sectors on innovation, investment and implementation can the international community deliver the imperatives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
Justin Perrettson, Novozymes, co-chair of the USCIB Environment Committee as well as chair of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Environment and Energy Commission delivered a statement at the COP26 Opening session on behalf of Business and Industry groups attending COP26.
