Building on the work of Caring for Climate and its partners, the Forum will showcase the contributions that business and investors can make towards climate action, while providing a high-level platform for exchange and collaboration with policymakers.

More specifically, the forum aims to bring greater scale to business innovation on climate change; give further encouragement to business and governments to raise ambition on climate policies; and encourage collaboration among business, the UN, Governments and other stakeholders.

The forum will serve as a launching ground for corporate climate action. New activities, resources and commitments will be announced by individual businesses, multiple companies, investors and stock exchanges, and public-private partnerships in support of the global climate change agenda.

Held over two days, the forum will provide a multi-stakeholder platform for dialogue and action among business, investors, civil society, the UN and Government officials, followed by a High-level Meeting on Corporate Climate Leadership with chief executives and ministers on the second day. Nearly 400 participants are expected to attend, with UN heads participating in key aspects of the event.

Day one of the forum will feature plenary sessions and thematic action workshops designed to maximize interaction between participants.
