The World Climate Summit 2012 is part of a 10-year process (2020), which started with the inaugural World Climate Summit in Cancun, Mexico in 2010. The annual World Climate Summit takes stock of the state of the World Climate and the lowcarbon economy, and identifies the industrial, financial, policy solutions and innovation drivers needed to accelerate progress in mitigating and adapting to climate change. It is the goal of the World Climate Summit to provide and communicate concrete deliverables to the global community: toolbox of good practice, new policies, new initiatives, and disruptive innovations.
FORMAT The Summit will focus on the overarching theme of accelerating solutions to climate change, addressing the broad issues of: finance and scale; public-private partnerships; renewable energy; legislation and policy; cities and regions; emission reductions; transportation; carbon pricing; energy efficiency; and business leadership. The summit will span over two days and will consist of the following elements: § Key note plenary sessions addressing the major global green growth issues (CEO level) § Interactive workshops and breakout sessions (C-level) § A series of exclusive roundtables (CEO level) § Networking lounge & VIP area § Lunch, dinner and cocktail reception
PARTNERS The World Climate Summit is backed by the best global media corporations, the climate arena’s strongest institutional partners, and the most relevant decisionmakers and leaders. The 2012 summit is set to succeed the inaugural summit in Cancun and the second one in Durban, which was supported by: 20 sponsors such as Siemens, Coca-Cola, and Philips; 30 different institutional partners including OECD, and World Bank; global media partners such as CNN; and more than 150 high-level speakers including President Zuma, President Calderon, Sir Richard Branson, Ted Turner, Christiana Figueres, Mary Robinson, and Lord Stern.
UNFCCC COP 18 The World Climate Summit is the biggest and most high-profile business event of COP 18. As a high-level conference that predominantly focuses on accelerating solutions to climate change on a global scale, the summit falls in line and complements the remit of the UNFCCC. In this context, the summit functions as a separate, independent and progressive platform, providing the premium medium through which the business, finance and political communities can communicate solutions, engage in partnerships and complement the official UNFCCC COP 18 negotiations.
