BCG at COP27

Combating the devastating effects of climate change requires mobilizing governments, corporations, finance, and civil society. At COP27, public- and private-sector leaders united in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt, to seek solutions alongside BCG, the exclusive COP27 consulting partner.

Climate action is an ongoing process, not an event, and it requires extraordinary collaboration. COP27 served as a critical opportunity for business and government leaders to double down on their climate goals, forge new collaborations, and achieve innovative solutions—together. BCG’s climate experts joined leaders around the world in Sharm El-Sheikh to seek innovative solutions to the problems caused by climate change. Here’s a snapshot of the headlines and insights.
