Cancun De-Brief: Reflections on COP-16 in Cancun and Implications for U.S. Businesses

In December 2010, the 16th Conference of Parties assembled in Cancun to revisit the Kyoto Protocol and seek to develop a worldwide consensus on regulating greenhouse gas emissions in developed and developing countries. Continuing on the overwhelming energy seen in the previous year's conference in Copenhagen, there were significant successes and failures realized through this annual, which saw thousands of delegates worldwide descend upon Cancun to participate in the official UN events as well as related business conferences.

The webinar was presented by ACCO and included discussions on the successes and failures of COP-16, and the impacts this event will have on the US policymaking process at Federal and sub-national levels.
Webinar participants include:
  • Dr Jonathan Pershing, Deputy Special Envoy for Climate Change, US Department of State
  • Elliot Diringer, Vice President, International Strategies, Pew Center for Global Climate Change
  • Denise Sheehan, Executive Director, The Climate Registry
