INATBA and recently participated in INATBA activities during the Convergence Global Blockchain Congress, at which time several INATBA members suggested the formation of a new WG focused on Climate Action. The process to form the Climate Action WG is in progress, and with the strong support within INATBA, it is expected to be approved formally in the coming weeks. In the meantime, members within INATBA will continue with work to define the work plan for the future WG. The joint meeting for December 10 will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to learn more about the organisations and the planned Climate Action WG.
Climate Chain Coalition is partnering with Climate Action to support the 10th Annual Sustainable Innovation Forum 2019 taking place alongside COP25 on the 10th-11th December in Madrid. The Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF) has been uniting the public and private sector to accelerate climate action for the last 10 years. SIF is now recognised as the leading business-focused side event taking place alongside the UN Climate Change negotiations. This year SIF will play a critical role in driving forward the Paris Agreement by convening over 600 delegates in just two days. SIF will gather environment, finance and energy ministers, city leaders, heads of UN agencies, CEO’s and heads of sustainability from global businesses and founders of clean tech start-ups that have the technology, expertise and capital to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon, global green economy.
