Climate Week New York runs 19-25 September, 2022, bringing together key opinion makers from government, business and non-governmental sector to address the impact of climate change. It’s the first in-person Climate Week since 2019, and high participation is expected.
The event, organised by the Climate Group, aims to bridge policy and big ideas with implementation, in a public-private context.
Climate Week refocuses attention on governments and businesses to deliver on commitments made at COP26, among other major climate forums. That is, the commitments to cut carbon emissions at speed and scale, while embedding climate resilience into investments. But companies and governments need help to make global action on climate and nature a part of their business value chain.
At Ramboll, we work closely with public and private sector clients to do so, helping them deliver more sustainable outcomes. In the US specifically, we are working with multiple large-scale projects in water, low-carbon buildings, transport and renewable energy sectors, helping develop and scale-up solutions within renewable energy and the built and natural environment.
At Climate Week we will be meeting with policymakers, clients, and experts and young professionals within resilience and decarbonisation. We will share our experience and best practices at these highlight events:
