CBA at royal climate event

This news item relates to the EFI-led initiative which ran from 2020 to September 2023

Circular Bioeconomy Alliance Chair Marc Palahí will participate in a reception at Buckingham Palace today, hosted by King Charles III ahead of the COP27 Climate Change Conference.

The event will bring together over 200 international business leaders, decision makers and NGOs from across a variety of sectors to discuss climate change and the progress made since COP26. Also attending will be US climate envoy, John Kerry and Alok Sharma, president of the COP26 conference.

Marc said: “This is a great honour for the CBA and EFI to participate in such a high-level event to discuss how forests and the bioeconomy can help to tackle climate change”.

The Circular Bioeconomy Alliance was founded by King Charles III in 2020, while still the Prince of Wales. It provides on-the-ground examples of how investing in land restoration can catalyse the development of nature-positive and climate-neutral value chains to decarbonise the economy while supporting local communities.

The CBA will participate in COP27, for example its Living Lab in the Himalayas will be highlighted at the Terra Carta Action Forum event on regenerative fashion on 7 November.
