Over 98 heads of state and government have accepted Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen’s invitation to attend the UN climate conference. A growing number of major greenhouse gas-emitting countries, including China, India, the U.S., and the EU have put forth emissions reduction targets. U.S. President Barack Obama may be able to successfully engage China and India and convince them to sign the next treaty, and leading global business leaders and investors have expressed their support for a global deal. Some might argue that we are seeing a sea change from the Kyoto Protocol negotiations. In this webcast, we will hear first-hand impressions of the Copenhagen meeting and how the meeting results will impact global business in the near term.

This webcast will discuss:

  • Key areas of consensus and disagreement at Copenhagen and expectations for the meeting in Mexico City
  • How effective business leaders were in framing the discussion and how the Copenhagen result will affect U.S. climate change policy
  • How the UN discussions directly affect business strategy and competitiveness in the near term
  • How a federalist approach to global climate change with multiple side agreements influences business strategy
