C40 Cities, CDP and WBCSD have created this two-tier network of cities and businesses to create systemic change through joint climate action. Participating cities, including Boston, Helsinki, Manchester, Stockholm and Durban, will talk about why they need strategic engagement with business and what they expect, and companies will provide insights on how they can align their climate action with cities. Speakers will be from: C40, CDP, Boston Green Ribbon Commission, Helsinki Smart and Clean Foundation, the cities of Manchester, Stockholm and Durban (tbc), ENEL, ENGIE, Arcadis and BNP Paribas.
