Sectoral engagement aims to enable an effective collaboration within an industry in order to enhance climate action in support of the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement. Relevant actors are brought into the global dialogue on climate action to identify challenges and create a forum where these are discussed and addressed collectively.
Currently, UN Climate Change has initiated climate action initiatives in collaboration with two sectors: the fashion industry and the sports community. Both sectors’ voluntary stakeholders convene to develop a coherent, unified position on climate. Their work programmes aim to connect the diverse stakeholders within their respective industries, to identify new areas for action and to scale up existing initiatives that connect the value chain.
