With cities having direct control over only 3% of their emissions, cross-sector collaboration is crucial to achieving global environmental goals and limiting global warming to 1.5˚C.
This session will showcase cities at varying stages of the journey to successful city-business collaboration, from Boston Green Ribbon Commission's fully operational city-business partnership to Dallas' recently launched City Business Climate Alliance initiative. In addition, we will be joined by a leading business representative who will discuss their experience with city-business collaboration and what the importance of it is from a business perspective.The event will also share learnings from the City Business Climate Alliance - a collaboration between CDP, C40 Cities and World Business Council for Sustainable Development, working with 20 cities globally to share knowledge and best practice on city business collaboration. Each organisation will bring a different perspective and insight, from data-driven approaches to leadership shown by Mayors and CEOs alike.
