2022 UN Climate Change Conference (COP27)
PBPC joined the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties in 2022 (COP27), to elevate the role plant-based products and a circular economy can play in addressing climate change. Plant-based products are crucial to reducing our reliance on fossil fuels in order to make so many of the products we rely on every day. COP27 was held Nov. 6-18, 2022, in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, where world leaders convened to take action towards the climate goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. PBPC partnered with allied organizations, including the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE), to host a virtual exhibit and side event to bring PBPC’s message to this international community.
PBPC Board Member, John Bode, participated in a discussion on Integrating Across Sectors: Business Leaders in Energy, Buildings, & Circular Economy. Watch the video below to learn more.
