OECD COP26 Virtual Pavilion

Putting people at the core of climate action

Nov 8, 2021 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM


The session will take place shortly after the release of the B4IG statement “Putting people at the core of climate action - Eight key indicators to measure the social challenges of the Just Transition". Climate change will have a major social impact that must be addressed in a systematic manner. We cannot ensure a Just transition if we do not put the people at the core of climate action. Governments have a central role to play in this, encouraging innovation and investment and addressing the macroeconomic challenges of the transition. Businesses have to play their part as well, by ensuring that the social impact of the ecological transition is not overlooked and is properly integrated into corporate policies. Governments, businesses, and other stakeholders must partner to carry out the responses to the social challenges of the transition. We must collectively ensure that no one is left behind. Panellists will discuss key topics such as public-private partnerships and corporate policies to minimise the negative social impact of climate policies and turn decarbonisation into an opportunity.
