COP22 – What does it mean for business?

In 2015 almost 200 countries met at the 21st UN Climate Conference in Paris (COP21) to broker an unprecedented climate deal. One year later, in November 2016, government negotiators meet again at the 22nd conference (COP22) to strengthen the world’s response to climate change.

The 22nd UN Climate Conference (known as COP22) takes place in Marrakech, Morocco from 7 to 18 November, 2016. It follows the historic 2015 conference in Paris (COP21) where almost 200 countries committed to reduce their own carbon emissions in order to halt global warming and create a carbon-neutral world.

At COP22, negotiators will focus on how to deliver these commitments and strengthen the world’s response to climate change.

This briefing has been written for executives at KPMG member firm clients. It sets out in simple terms what COP22 is about, what is expected to happen and why it matters to business.
