A statement from Aron Cramer, President and CEO, BSR:
We applaud California Governor Jerry Brown’s leadership in making the Global Climate Action Summit happen in California next September. We are confident that the Summit will confirm and advance the ambition needed to take decisive action to build inclusive, resilient economic prosperity, and BSR will dedicate itself to making the Summit a great success.
The Summit will both reflect and accelerate the powerful momentum toward climate action from the business community, investors, states and cities, civil society, and other actors. The momentum toward the vision of the Paris Agreement remains strong, and next year’s Summit will be an opportunity to assess progress, develop new partnerships, and harness innovation, all with the goal of limiting warming to well below 2°C.
BSR is extremely pleased to serve on the Steering Committee as the representative of business community, working with our more than 250 member companies, our partners in the We Mean Business coalition, and many others to ensure that business action continues to grow, and that the business voice is heard by policymakers in all parts of the world. We look forward to creating channels for input as the plans for the Summit are developed further.
