From December 3-14, 2018, more than 30,000 corporate, civil society and government leaders will come together for the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Katowice, Poland. Delegates will discuss key climate change issues and work towards a rulebook to operationalize the Paris Agreement.
