Every year international leaders from business, government, and civil society congregate in New York City for a week-long conference to spotlight global climate action—and on the heels of a historic climate bill (the recently passed U.S. Inflation Reduction Act) urgency with a dash of optimism pervaded the air in every session.
Here’s your breakdown of Climate Week’s noteworthy moments, including our first ever Climate Pledge Summit:
Monday: A Collective Call for Climate Action
We kicked off climate week with a social media takeover involving over 70 signatories across multiple platforms encouraging ambitious climate action with one key message: be the planet’s turning point. Alongside this demonstration of collective commitment, signatories shared concrete actions their businesses are taking to meet the Pledge and achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2040.
