Established in 2007 and headquartered in London, UK, Climate Action works in a unique, contractual partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) – the world’s foremost body on environmental protection and stewardship.
Climate Action establishes and builds partnerships between business, government and public bodies to accelerate international sustainable development and advance the ‘green economy’.
We do this by providing a global media and events platform across which stakeholders can share knowledge, technologies and expertise, and identify innovative solutions to the challenges faced by climate change and a growing population.
For our partners and supporters we help engage the private sector, bringing innovations, technologies and finance to the debate.
For our clients we help generate profitable business opportunities and partnerships, provide top-level access to emerging markets and reinforce their commitment to, and their position as leaders within, the global sustainability industry.
We believe, for sustainable development to truly make an impact at both grassroots and at global level, governments, public institutions and international business should work in strategic, productive and mutually beneficial partnerships.
Business is able to assist governments and the wider public sector by providing innovation, new technologies, investment, research & development.
Governments and the wider public sector are uniquely able to provide the policy, the regulatory framework, infrastructure and economic platform that are all essential if sustainable business and the global green economy is to flourish.
Climate Action was specifically established to promote these partnerships because only doing so can solutions be found for the many challenges facing the world’s population and environment.
Our ongoing research programme continually assesses and evaluates what works and what is needed to engage business, governments and public institutions, and has helped us design and tailor a programme of activity that brings real sustainable value to all corners of the debate.
