WEF Alliance of CEO Climate leaders

Supercharging public-private sector efforts on climate resilience and net-zero

Public-private sector cooperation is vital to achieve net-zero by 2050 because no organisation can tackle this gargantuan issue alone. The Alliance of CEO Climate Leaders is the largest such alliance in the world and is co-chaired by our Group CEO. On 10 June, Christian and over 70 member CEOs released a policy memo calling on all world leaders to supercharge the net-zero and climate momentum with bold commitments, policies and actions:

Climate change is one of the biggest global challenges that will shape the way the world does business now, and in the coming decades. The private sector has a responsibility to take action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to help lead the global transition to a low-carbon, climate resilient economy. ​The World Economic Forum's Alliance of climate leaders is a coalition of CEO's from around the world and from across industry sectors committed to delivering concrete climate solutions and innovations in their practices, operations and policies.

Jesper Brodin (CEO Ingka Group/IKEA) and Christian Mumenthaler (CEO Swiss Re) took on the role of Co-chairs to the Alliance in June 2020, joining founding member Feike Sijbesma. Our campaign explains more about the pivotal role of the private sector and how Swiss Re and the Alliance can accelerate progress towards COP26 in the #racetozero. Watch the video to find out more.
