Business Fights Poverty

How do we apply a climate justice lens to build business and community resilience?

This session, hosted with Change by Degrees, explored how businesses can put people at the heart of their climate actions. What does climate justice as a term mean, and what is the latest thinking on equity, justice and climate resilience? How can a climate justice approach based on participation and human rights enable the communities to be at the forefront of solutions? What have we learnt about the action businesses can take, individually and in partnership with others?
