The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) asked the private sector and civil society how to accelerate climate action. This was in order to bring a fresh perspective as details on implementing the Paris Climate Agreement are negotiated at COP24. It called the process the Talanoa Dialogue. In response, Natural Capital Partners organised Dialogues in Amsterdam, Dublin, London, New York, San Francisco and Stockholm with 61 companies with combined revenues of $1.3 trillion. Our full report – Raising Ambition: The Role of Business in Getting to Net Zero – includes 10 recommendations for the UNFCCC to help accelerate private sector climate action.
