Reaching Climate Goals through Nature-Based Solutions

Nature-based solutions play an integral part in keeping the global temperature rise below 1.5°C. Recent studies show that carbon capture through nature-based approaches such as climate-smart agriculture, restoration and conservation, can provide more than a third of the emissions reductions needed to meet our climate goals.

During this Climate Leaders Forum Corporations and Organizations will share their experiences, successes and roadblocks when implementing nature-based approaches. During round table discussions facilitated by South Pole the challenges posed by the speakers will be discussed allowing to tap into the wisdom of a crowd of climate professionals and stakeholders.

Speakers:

  • Andrea Stockinger, Senior Project Manager Climate Finance Projects, Climate Austria
  • Ursula Riegler, Public Affairs & Communications Director, Coca-Cola HBC Österreich
  • Wilhelm Baldia, Head of Corporate Communications, McDonald’s
  • Christopher Politano, Sustainability Adviser, South Pole

Hosts:

Room 5 at the Wirtschaftskammer Österreich, Wiedner Hauptstrasse 63, Vienna, Austria
