United Nations Climate Change High-Level Champions and Bloomberg Philanthropies to Host Race to Zero and Resilience Forum (August 25, 2022)


Michael R. Bloomberg and the UN Climate Action High-level Champions for COP26 & COP27 hosted a landmark summit during the UN General Assembly and Climate Week in New York City, convening business, finance, government, civic and cultural leaders. During this week of pivotal federal convenings, this event bridged the gap between government leaders and non-state actors to ensure the fulfillment of pledges and commitments, and drove the radical collaboration needed to deliver on climate goals. The forum shined a light on the need to accelerate the mobilization of capital, to continue reducing emissions without exacerbating debt, and to build climate adaptive and resilience communities across all corners of the world.

Since the launch of the Race to Zero and Race to Resilience campaigns ahead of COP26, over 8,000 businesses, 1,100 cities and 500 financial institutions have committed to robust net-zero targets and over 30 initiatives representing more than 2,000 organizations are leading the way to build the resilience and adaptation of the most vulnerable communities. We took stock of the progress made and explored what more is needed from all stakeholders to create an inclusive and resilient economy.
