  • 18:0018:20 GMT  –  Concordia Annual Summit: Sustainability in the Mining Sector

    Join Christian at the Concordia Annual Summit to discuss sustainability in the mining sector. As the demand for sustainable solutions to the climate crisis heightens, so too does the need for new partnerships and models of investment into the exploration of critical minerals that will be essential for the green transition. Raw materials, such as Copper and Nickel, and increasingly uranium and lithium too, are required to transport and store clean energy - and their demand is skyrocketing. To meet the demands of decarbonization, the field requires an injection of investment and new ideas quickly. How can accelerators such as BHP’s Xplor, support concepts and unlock new ideas that may be too novel or early-stage to access bank funding but that could be pioneering the search for critical mineral deposits? What does this mean for other ESG investments? What kind of support do these early-stage geological concepts require? And, what innovations are we seeing to meet the new demands of lithium-ion batteries for EVs and other clean energy storage?

  • 17:3019:00 GMT  –  Nature4Climate: Advancing corporate action for nature through transition planning and the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and Science Based Targets Network (SBTN) frameworks

    The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of our economic and social systems, and the urgency of addressing the environmental and ecological crises we face. Business-as-usual is no longer an option. We need a radical transformation of how we produce, consume, and live in harmony with nature.

    Join Hayley for an insightful panel discussion with experts from different sectors and backgrounds, who will share their perspectives and experiences on how corporates and financial institutions can adopt transition strategies, set targets and deploy actions to safeguard nature, mitigate risks, and seize opportunities.

  • 14:3016:00 GMT  –  World Economic Forum (WEF): Sustainable Development Impact Meeting - Scope 3 partnership session on ‘Measuring and Managing Scope 3 Emissions: A dialogue with finance and accounting leaders’

    This cross-community gathering brings together technical accounting and finance practitioners to tackle the pressing subject of measuring and managing scope 3 emissions in reporting. Scope 3 emissions account for around 70% of the average corporate value chain’s total emissions but with supply chains often so vast and complex, measuring, managing and reporting these scope 3 emissions can be challenging. What are the critical pathways that companies can take to effectively address this issue?



Climate Week NYC is the largest annual climate event of its kind, bringing together some 400 events and activities across the City of New York – in person, hybrid and online. Each year, business leaders, political change makers, local decision takers and civil society representatives of all ages and backgrounds, from all over the world, gather to drive the transition, speed up progress, and champion change that is already happening.

Climate Week NYC is hosted by Climate Group, an international non-profit whose purpose is to drive climate action, fast. Climate Group hosts the official program during the week that brings together the most senior international figures from business, government, civil society and the climate sector.
