The Global Roundtable on Climate Change brings together more than 150 high-level, critical stakeholders from all regions of the world — including senior executives from the private sector and leaders of international governmental and non-governmental organizations — to explore core scientific, technological, and economic issues critical to shaping sound public policies on climate change. The Roundtable has six over-arching objectives:
1. To assist development of an improved global consensus on a sensible course for climate policy – one that steers carefully among the simultaneous objectives of mitigating man-made climate change on the one side while achieving economic development and growth on the other;
2. To explore technological and policy options for providing clean, efficient and affordable energy, transportation and production facilities that fully meet the need for economic development and economic growth around the world but in a manner that does not dangerously destabilize the climate system;
3. To help set in motion demonstration projects that test, scale, promote or otherwise assist the development and implementation of new technologies, processes or policies for mitigating or adapting to climate change.;
4. To assist businesses to adjust to climate change realities in all dimensions, including: forecasting and adjustment to climate change itself; anticipating public policies that will address climate change; and navigating in a world of unprecedented stresses and changes to the world’s energy and productive systems.
5. To provide a unique forum for discussion, analysis and the exchange of ideas among business from all economic sectors and all parts of the world, international institutions, non-governmental organizations, and leading academic experts.
6. To act as a catalyst in fostering new initiatives and interactions among Roundtable participants to address climate change.
