Climate Week NYC is the time and place where the world gathers together to showcase amazing climate action and discusses how to do more.
Taking place between September 24-30, 2018, in New York City, Climate Week NYC is one of the critical summits in the international calendar and has been driving climate action forward since The Climate Group first launched it in 2009.
Climate Week NYC is a global event, run by The Climate Group in coordination with the United Nations and the City of New York, which happens annually during the UN General Assembly. Climate Week NYC hosts government ministers, investors, governors, CEOs, and mayors from across the world; they are shaping markets and setting policy to make climate action a reality.
Businesses, governments, academic institutions, arts and music organizations, and NGOs are invited to participate in this week, through the Climate Week NYC Events program. From panel discussions to concerts, exhibitions, and seminars, organizations and individuals can play a pivotal role in advancing the debate, driving awareness, and keeping climate action at the top of the global agenda. Climate Week NYC 2017 was host to more than 140 affiliate events.

In 2018, for nearly 3 billion people each day, cooking is conducted on open fires or rudimentary cookstoves that are fueled by coal or unsustainable wood. At a time when pressure to take climate action is increasing, supporting clean cookstoves climate protection projects is ranked as one of the most efficient solution to stabilize our climate and make a positive impact in the world. In addition to the climate benefits associated with their use, clean cookstoves and fuels support vulnerable communities around the world in ways that can be life-changing: empowering women and girls, providing new local jobs, improving health and protecting biodiversity.
This panel discussion organized during Climate Week NYC will present best practices developed to date and then launch into thoughtful discussion around other strategies and tactics that might help businesses, foundations and other non-profit organizations create the most value in their strategy to implement the Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, speakers will also explore the whole range of benefits awaiting those taking decisive actions: boosts in trust, quality of stakeholder relationships, and newly-created social value along the value chain.
