for the Business Voices for Glasgow project
This grant will allow the Business Voices for Glasgow project to elevate and coordinate U.S. business leaders to help ensure a successful United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, and encourage U.S. corporate leaders to engage with their peers to deepen commitments and accelerate timelines. A key lever for global success will be the role of U.S.-based CEOs to lead with their own corporate commitments, engage in robust public communications, and support behind-the-scenes conversations with their peers and state-level negotiators.
