One Planet Summit
Public and private finance in support of climate action
Our challenge today is to fulfill our common destiny. Are we able to unite to take tangible action together? This should only be a rhetorical question since we do not have a plan B as there is no planet B. On 12 December 2017, two years to the day after the historic Paris Agreement was concluded, we will provide new tangible responses to this question. A main focus of this event will be to determine how those working in public and private finance can innovate to support and accelerate our common efforts to fight climate change.
The three aims of the One Planet Summit are:
- Take tangible and collective action: There are solutions, let’s roll them out globally and locally as swiftly as possible.
- Innovate: Let’s be creative and resourceful in adapting our systems to the inevitable changes and step up our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Support one another: We are all affected by climate change, but some of us are more vulnerable than others. Let’s work together for the good of all and increase our support even more to the countries and peoples who need it most. How can we do this? By putting forward new and tangible actions and ideas (ClimActs) that involve all public and private stakeholders.
We are ONE planet.
