CEOE has been an Observer Entity before the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change since 2011 and, as in previous years, it was present at COP23. During the two weeks of negotiations, the objective of all the Observer Entities was for the Convention to give visibility and consider companies and industries as part of the solution to the climate change problem. The role of the private sector is key to achieving the goals and reinforcing the global response to the climate change threat.
