Africa Shared Value Leadership Summit

Climate Justice & The Importance of Climate Finance


Tue, 25 Oct: 14:30 - 15:45 CAT

Free/Open to All


AD12, Theatre Style Room



Session Description

Climate justice recognises the disproportionate impact of climate change on low-income communities, the people, and places least responsible for the problem. It seeks solutions to address the root causes of climate change and in doing so, address a broad range of social, racial, and environmental injustices. It is vital that business helps deliver a just transition that includes creating shared value – a shift to a green, low-carbon economy that does not leave millions of workers and their communities behind – and ensure climate justice across their business operations, supply chains, philanthropic activities, and engagement in policy dialogues. *How do we harness the power of shared value and digital technology, as we transition to a more climate friendly and just society on the Africa continent?*
