How Business Can Deliver Health Resilient Climate Action

The health costs associated with climate change, including conditions linked to air pollution, undernutrition, extreme weather events and infectious disease, are immense. Air pollution alone, resulting from society’s deadly addiction to coal and the burning of fossil fuels, causes one in five premature deaths globally. Meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement presents businesses across all sectors with the opportunity to deliver co-benefits for human and planetary health and improve their climate and business performance.

Join this UN Global Compact Academy session to learn more about the climate-nature-health nexus. You will hear from experts and business leaders on how health risks linked to climate and nature impact businesses and why tackling these crises jointly to create health resiliency is a business opportunity.


During this session, you will be provided with:

Priority actions your company can take in five areas: air pollution, food systems, nature and biodiversity, water resilience and just transition

Practical company examples outlining how these priority actions can help deliver climate-nature-health co-benefits
