COP 19: Corporate Engagement on Climate Policy-Making

Caring for Climate in partnership with World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), The Climate Group, Ceres and CDP have come together to conduct a study on the nature and implications of corporate engagement on climate policy-making with a shared objective: to provide companies with practical guidance for engaging constructively in climate change policy debates.

Information about the report is here – it aims to synthesise past research on corporate lobbying and public policy advocacy to define five core elements of responsible engagement:
– Legitimacy
– Opportunity
– Consistency
– Accountability
– Transparency

The report will be released on 14 November, ahead of the Caring for Climate Business Forum 19-20 November in Warsaw, Poland (during the 19th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC). This post will be updated then.
