The Paris Agreement on Climate Change, signed by 200 nations in December 2015, requires countries to lower greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to limit global temperature increases. While individual nations are developing action plans (INDCs) to meet this challenge, companies worldwide are also setting emission targets for themselves. Come learn more about the implications of the Paris Agreement for businesses and NGOs around the globe. Professor: Monika Kondura
