Enabling business mitigation and adaptation to climate change. Green policies and the role of Employer and Business Membership Organizations. Executive Summary
Climate change is a global challenge that is affecting billions of people, entire communities, employers and business organisations, and enterprises across regions. In the context of the ambitious obligations of the Paris Agreement, participating countries need to make emissions reductions in all industrial and economic sectors. However, this can only be realised by the private sector if a holistic and coherent policy framework is implemented, in consultation with Employer and Business Membership Organisations (EBMOs). Therefore, supporting business mitigation and adaptation to climate change is of the essence to accelerate change towards a net zero carbon emissions economy.
