G7 and G20

2022 is a crucial year for international climate protection. The German G7 presidency and the Indonesian G20 presidency have both put climate protection at the top of their agendas. This presents a unique opportunity to accelerate the pace of the global climate transition to a carbon-neutral economy, to negotiate important compromises and to take a significant step forward.

Together with the member companies of our EU Industry Leaders Group and the We Mean Business Coalition, we aim to use the political momentum provided by the German G7 presidency to demonstrate that the transition to a net-zero economy is possible, makes business sense and is already in full swing. We are making a constructive contribution to the German G7 presidency by engaging in debate, organizing events, providing a platform for dialogue, building bridges and forging pioneering alliances. The focus of our work is on industrial transformation and constructive contributions to discussion around the concept of international climate clubs.
