SBA and the Big Year

Throughout 2014, every sector of our economy felt the weight of climate change. More significantly, many more people across business began to interweave the repercussions of a changing climate with issues – like poverty, urbanization, lifestyles, economic standards and community development – that had previously appeared as separate prongs on any impact chart. So 2015 IS a big year, and business contributions will be central to climate action and sustainable development.

The SBA 2015 Focus is all about Business - Setting the Pace. Our focus aligns with the proven and expansive framework of the WBCSD Action2020 Agenda, to raise awareness, highlight business action, and advocate the need to accelerate and scale up business solutions to achieve a sustainable world.

At the UNFCCC COP 21 in December 2015 a new global climate agreement will be brokered. This anticipated agreement will shape the post-2020 climate regime. To lock-in ambition considerable effort at national, international and non-State levels needs to be done on the ‘Road to Paris’. The UNFCCC COP 20 in Lima is therefore an crucial landmark.

Business leaders are ready to build on the unprecedented recent momentum and call on governments for concrete steps in Lima, supporting delivery of a universal, ambitious and balanced climate agreement in Paris next year. SBA, as the Australian Global Network Partner of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, will be on the ground in Lima from 8 December reporting the final week of negotiations and events and leading business in several key collaborative processes to support an upwards spiral of ambition towards a positive outcome.
