IEA Deputy Executive Director participates in the ICC-WBCSD Business Day, and served as a speaker on the summary panel of experts.
11 December 2009
The ICC-WBCSD Business Day brought together more than 300 decision-makers from business, governments, inter-governmental and non-governmental organizations at the Copenhagen climate talks, including IEA Deputy Executive Director Richard H. Jones.
While business is leading action on climate change on many fronts, attendees were further challenged to become more relevant to the international climate change debate and to offer clear products to address climate change.
It was a day of intense dialogue and debate, with focus on how business can identify what needs to be scaled up or transformed, as well as an exploration of the policies and funding that are needed to make a successful impact.
