The 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP 27) & the UNGC
In November 2022, the Government of the Arab Republic of Egypt will host the 27th Conference of the Parties of the UNFCCC (COP 27), with a view to building on previous successes and paving the way for future ambition to effectively tackle the global challenge of climate change.
The meeting comprises the twenty-seventh session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 27), the seventeenth session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP 17), and the fourth session of the Conference of the Parties serving as the meeting of the Parties to the Paris Agreement (CMA 4).
The United Nations Global Compact (UNGC) will host a series of Blue Zone and Green Zone events this year. These events will showcase the changes the UN Global Compact and UN Global Compact Local Networks are driving by mobilizing businesses to assess environmental risks and opportunities, set and deliver ambitious climate targets, and adopt responsible practices to transition to a net-zero, resilient economy. You can learn more about these events on the UNGC’s COP27 Website, which will be continuously updated as and when events/details confirmed.
The UNGC’s 10th Annual High-Level Meeting of Caring for Climate will take place on Thursday, November 10. The meeting will bring together senior executives of business, industry, finance, civil society, the UN, and Government to act decisively to avert a climate catastrophe. The gathering is by invitation only to CEOs, and the UNGC will be able to provide a day pass for the Blue Zone for those who are invited.
All other UNGC Blue Zone events are open to all levels but will still require Blue Zone accreditation. Kindly note that the UNGC cannot assist interested participants in gaining Blue Zone accreditation. Events in the Green Zone are open to all levels and will not require special accreditation. However, in advance, company representatives must request Green Zone access on the COP27 Website.
