ICC plays a central role at climate change negotiations as the official UNFCCC Focal Point for Business and Industry.

Here’s everything you need to know about our role and activities.

ICC – Your official business “Focal Point’’

The Conference of the Parties – more simply referred to as COP – is the decision-making body of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

ICC is officially responsible for bringing the business perspective to the UN climate negotiations and supporting business engagement throughout the two-week meetings.

Our activities include:

  • Coordinating and contributing the business perspective to the negotiations and high-level meetings
  • Holding daily briefings for business and industry delegates known as BINGO Briefings. A benefit to the business community, our briefings are a chance to assess developments of the previous day and to determine a plan for the current day’s negotiation agenda
  • Hosting the official Business and Industry Day (BINGO Day) ) to showcase private sector climate action and provide an opportunity for constructive policy dialogue between business and policymakers
  • Working with the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action team to deliver action events around the following thematic areas: industry, energy, transport, land use, water, oceans, human settlement, resilience and finance
