2007

The 24th UNEP Consultative Meeting on Business & Industry took the form of a Global Dialogue event held in an emerging market economy. Supported by Brazilian business and the UN Global Compact, UNEP's first "Business & Industry Global Dialogue" in Brazil was held in Sao Paulo from 15 - 16 October 2007.

Over 140 business delegates and representatives from business organizations, industry and financing institutions, public institutions and non-governmental organizations discussed new trends, innovations, policy developments and UN-business partnership opportunities to address climate change, energy and responsible chemicals management.

Speakers at the 2007 Global Dialogue included representatives from internationally known institutes such as the Pew Centre and the World Resources Institute in Washington DC, the Energy and Resource Centre (TERI) in India, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) in South Africa as well as financial sector institutions such as London-based Carbon Disclosure Project, the Brazil Stock Exchange and the Washington-based Global Environment Facility.
