“Unofficial” US Pavilion at COP23 Spotlights Business and Civic Leadership on Climate Change

There’s general agreement that more progress needs to be made more quickly on addressing climate change. It’s a refrain often heard at COP23, now underway in Bonn, Germany. Where will the impetus come from? A just-released survey by GlobeScan and SustainAbility finds that solutions will be driven by the private sector and other non-national state actors. As if activating the survey’s results in real time, a group of American governors, mayors, business leaders, and academics have opened an “unofficial” US climate action pavilion at the conference, as part of the We Are Still In coalition. All have pledged to implement policies to deliver the US to its Paris Agreement target of reducing emissions by 26 to 28 percent by 2025.
