Explanation :
The Business & Climate Summit is the leading annual forum (not under WEF) for businesses, investors and policymakers on climate action. It is where business and governments come together to agree on a roadmap for reaching net zero emissions over the next half century. It demonstrates how low carbon strategies are good for business and good for growth – and builds the partnerships needed to scale up and accelerate the low carbon transition.
The third Business Climate Summit (BCS) was held in New Delhi on 31 August and 1 September 2017, with the focus on spatial planning, climate finance and the role of carbon markets.
The first two summits were held in Paris (2015) and London (2016).
