Engage your business in collaborative climate action
With a solid framework and clear agenda, LCTPi is a unique, action-oriented programme that brings together companies and partners to accelerate the development of low-carbon technology solutions to stay below the 2°C ceiling.
Led by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in partnership with the International Energy Agency (IEA) and Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), LCTPi has gathered over 150 global businesses with 70 partners to work collaboratively on the climate challenge.
The buy-in of business CEOs to the LCTPi process is critical and it is the CEOs who sign a statement agreeing the ambition.
As LCTPi was launched during 2015, meetings were held in Paris, Durban, Sao Paulo, New Delhi, New York, Beijing and London, where the ambition and action plans were shared and shaped with the inputs of a broad set of stakeholders.
Nine LCTPi Focus Areas were developed: Climate Smart Agriculture, Forests as Carbon Sinks, Cement, Chemicals, Carbon Capture & Storage, Renewables, Low Carbon Transport Fuels, Low Carbon Freight and Energy Efficiency in Buildings. According to the PwC Impact Assessment published in November 2015, these projects could, if fully implemented, contribute 65% of the emission reductions needed in 2030 to prevent more than 2°C of warming.
