As we get deeper into the 2020s, this past year has shown that the effects of climate change are not 'when', but 'now'.
With the increasing prevelance of climate related events across the globe, the urgency and complexity of action has grown substantially. What we need now is radical collaboration from governments, communities and business to realise a pathway to net zero.
We already have the technologies, finance, and markets to catalyse progress. Genuine collaborative action is the missing piece. We need to harness the power of ‘with’ to make progress. Together we can identify blockers, share insights and deliver solutions - joining forces to tackle the challenges we all face.
This year the United Nation’s Global Stocktake has shown us that we must maintain and strengthen our commitment to solving climate change. COP28 offers governments, businesses, community organisations and NGOs the chance to stop, reassess, and recommitment to our collective endeavours.
Using the Power of 'With' at COP28 to deliver positive action, now.
At Xynteo, we believe that businesses and their senior leaders can have a disproportionate impact on delivering significant positive change for both people and the planet.
By fostering collaboration among businesses to inspire collective impact, we're committed to empowering bold leadership, establishing sustainable business ecosystems, and accelerating the transition from words to tangible, planet-positive actions.
This year, we will be at COP to engage with governments, businesses and NGOs in finding ways to accelerate our collective mission to create a better world. Below you can learn more about our team, and the events we are attending, facilitating, and joining.
We hope you will join us in turning radical collaboration into positive action.
