The most important and influential business, finance and government leaders in the climate change arena are coming together with more than 100 high-level speakers, and the largest coalition of financiers at the inaugural World Climate Summit, December 4-5, at The Ritz-Carlton, Cancun, Mexico, in parallel to the UNFCCC COP 16.


“We have 10 years to scale and implement existing solutions globally. Cancun will be the beginning of this global transformation, with the business and finance community driving this change.” Jens Nielsen & Michael Mathres, Founders, World Climate Summit

World Climate Summit 2010 is launching of a new, open and collaborative global 10-year framework dedicated to helping governments, businesses and financiers accelerate solutions to climate change. The World Climate Summit is bringing more than 300 leading companies, financiers and government leaders to implement, scale and collaborate on bottom-up solutions to climate change to help reach regional and global 2020 targets.

Niels B. Christiansen, CEO, Danfoss said, "Solutions to climate change such as energy efficiency already exist. We see the World Climate Summit as a perfect platform to scale and finance them regionally and globally."

Some key highlights of the World Climate Summit include:

  • Sir Richard Branson, Ted Turner, Lord Stern, Emilio Azcarraga, President of Grupo Televisa, and more than 100 high-level speakers confirmed from more than 20 industries
  • Convening, under the leadership of The UNEP Finance Initiative, the largest network of investors and financial intermediaries demanding climate change action ever assembled—representing more than $20 trillions of assets under management.
  • Introducing new global initiatives and the launch of the Carbon War Room Gigaton Awards—the Oscars of sustainable business—celebrating cities, companies and leaders tackling climate change.
“The global climate challenge provides an urgent imperative to build a global clean economy that can deliver greater prosperity, health, and security, and be the engine of our economic recovery. At the World Climate Summit, participants will get down to the practical work of making this more sound future a reality.” Aimee Christensen, Program Chair, World Climate Summit
