This past week, organized events were held across New York City for Climate Week and the United Nation’s Climate Action Summit. These events were designed to inspire business, government, and nonprofit leaders to accelerate the transition to a nature-positive future.

This report comes just 2 years after the IPCC demonstrated the abysmal gap in impacts between a 1.5°C and 2°C global warming trajectory.
