From the UN negotiations in Bali in 2007 through to Durban in 2011, The Communiqués have set out a concise business case for an ambitious, robust, effective and equitable UN climate framework.
They have offered a progressive global consensus on the shape of an international agreement and on the national policy that is needed for countries to deliver on the global goal.
The Corporate Climate Communiqués are seen by many as representing the definitive voice of the progressive international business community in advance of the annual UN climate conferences. The Communiqués have inspired over 1,100 companies in more than sixty countries to call for ambitious global action on climate change.
Support for their messages have come from CEOs around the world, including the US, EU, Japan, Australia and Canada, to Brazil, Mexico, Russia, India, China, South Africa and Turkey; ranging from the world’s largest companies and best-known brands, to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The first Communiqué was a key intervention at the UN climate negotiations in Bali in 2007. In the run up to the unprecedented focus on climate change at the UN meeting in Copenhagen in 2009, support for The Communiqués built to over 950 companies endorsing the call for an "ambitious, robust and equitable global deal on climate change".
"Carbon price and market provides the most economically effective means of mitigating GHG emissions while fostering business innovation and growth."
