In November 2022, leaders of government, business and civil society gathered in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, for COP27. The two-week meeting hosted the UN process for negotiating action on climate change and the business community played an important role. PwC was on the ground, meeting with leaders and exploring topics of climate adaptation, just transition, climate resilience, green skills and climate tech. Because climate change demands business change, to accelerate the race to net zero and a just transition for all.
Reflections on what was achieved at COP27, where expectations fell short, and what it all means for the race to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

Net zero isn’t a solo project. It requires a holistic view across an ecosystem that includes government, businesses, customers and communities. Transforming at pace for a changing world requires skilled people, innovative thinking and smart technologies - a community of solvers working together to build trust across the net zero ecosystem to deliver sustained outcomes which will make a positive difference to our world. At PwC we’re leaning into how we play our part, through our own commitment to achieve net zero by 2030.
The New Equation shows us a path for solving today’s big problems. To address climate risks and capture new opportunities, organisations need to reinvent themselves – fast. Every region on Earth is feeling the impacts of climate change - but the reality is that some parts of the world will be more acutely affected, more quickly. This is why working towards a ‘just transition’ is critical for the future health and prosperity for all of us collectively.
