World Climate Summit follows COP25 to Madrid

Leading forum for climate change solutions to host 10th Anniversary event in Spain alongside UN Climate Change Conference this December


MADRID, Spain — November 14th, 2019 — Following news from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat on the change in location of the United Nations Climate Change Conference from Santiago, Chile to Madrid, Spain, World Climate Summit - The Investment COP has announced it will also take place in Madrid alongside the COP25 negotiations.


“This year’s Conference of the Parties presents a pivotal opportunity for taking action towards a 1.5 degree world and increasing ambition for Nationally Determined Contributions in advance of next year’s COP in Glasgow. As the leading platform for business- and investment-driven solutions to climate change, World Climate Summit and The Investment COP are committed to offering a dedicated space for catalysing public-private partnerships and cross-sectoral collaboration alongside these negotiations to bring climate goals closer to reality,” said World Climate Ltd CEO Jens Nielsen following the announcement.


Since its launch in 2010, World Climate Summit has become an annual destination for policymakers, investors, solutions providers, and industry experts committed to leading climate change solutions and collaborative action towards meeting Paris Agreement goals.

The Investment COP was initiated in parallel to last year’s UN Climate Conference in Katowice, Poland as an open-source forum to enable countries, regions, cities, project developers, and clean technology businesses to present and develop investment projects. The Investment COP sessions will provide valuable insights and create meaningful engagement and partnerships, enabling the development and scaling of bankable climate initiatives, best practice financial models, and mobilised investments.


By connecting key stakeholders from across sectors, World Climate Summit and The Investment COP bolster developments towards a low-carbon economy and support “bottom up” implementation of climate change solutions.


This year, the Summit and Investment COP will convene a network of over 40 international partners and a leading cohort of speakers for discussions on topics including building smart and sustainable cities, mobilising investment for climate resilience, and accelerating the global transition to renewable energy.


The event will be held on Sunday, November 8th at the Madrid Marriott Auditorium Hotel and Conference Center in Madrid, Spain.
