France Hosts #OnePlanetSummit

December 12, Paris, France hosts the One Planet Summit on the second anniversary of the historic Paris Agreement. The summit – by invitation only – aims to find new, concrete responses to the question: “are we capable of uniting to bring a concrete response to the climate challenge?”

A main focus of this event will be to determine how those working in public and private finance can innovate to support and accelerate our common efforts to fight climate change.


The One Planet Summit aims to:
1. Act concretely and collectively: solutions exist and need to be deployed globally and locally as swiftly as possible.
2. Innovate: by being creative and resourceful in adapting our systems to inevitable changes and stepping up our efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
3. Support one another: we are all affected by climate change, but some are more vulnerable than others. For the common good, we need to work together and increase our support to the countries and peoples who need it most.

This Summit will be a forum putting forward new and tangible actions and ideas (ClimActs) involving all public and private stakeholders.

The Summit is being organized jointly by France, the UN and the World Bank, in partnership with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the We Mean Business group, the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy, the European Commission, the C40 Cities network and the OECD.
