Description Caring for Climate was launched by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in July 2007. The initiative is jointly convened by the United Nations Global Compact, the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). By supporting the Caring for Climate Statement participants commit to set voluntary targets to improve energy efficiency and to reduce their carbon footprint. Participants report publicly and annually on the achievement of those targets
Objectives Caring for Climate endeavors to help prevent a climate change crisis by mobilizing a critical mass of business leaders to implement and recommend climate change solutions and policies.The initiative helps companies to advance practical solutions, share experiences, inform public policy as well as shape public attitudes. Chief executive officers who support the Caring for Climate Statement are prepared to set goals, develop and expand strategies and practices, and publicly disclose emissions as part of their existing disclosure commitment within the Global Compact framework, that is, the Communication on Progress.
