Climate Change and Global Health – the Power of Business under Crisis [in Mandarin Chinese]
The recent outbreak of COVID-19 is not only a global public health crisis, but also a profoundly impactful event for the economy. Governments, companies and individuals are actively taking response actions to fight the pandemic and its detrimental human and economic effects. In such critical times, the unity of business can be a powerful force for good.
To guide more Chinese companies in undertaking ambitious public health action as well as climate action, such as the formulation of science-based emissions reduction targets, the United Nations Global Compact and the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade are organizing a webinar on “Climate Change and Global Health – the power of business under crisis”, on April 14, 2020.
During this webinar, you will have the opportunity to hear experts from the World Health Organization and the World Wildlife Fund, and learn from the direct experience of other companies.
In this session, participants will:
– Explore the ways in which climate change affects public health
– Learn how to set science-based emission reduction targets for their companies in line with a 1.5°C global warming pathway
– Evaluate the critical role of business to achieve the UN SDGs
