New York – Citi today announced the release of three Global Perspectives & Solutions (Citi GPS) reports that highlight a range of challenges and opportunities related to the climate crisis. The new research, which underscore the importance of increased private and public sector engagement to address complex global issues, will be discussed at the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.
In addition to these GPS reports, Citi will host a panel event at COP27 on November 10 to present new research focused on the importance of a sustainable ocean economy. Often overlooked, ocean health plays a critical role in maintaining the global climate and tackling biodiversity loss, and the event will explore how the public and private sectors can work together to better manage ocean resources and address these interconnected issues.
Citi's presence at COP27 includes a delegation of senior leaders representing businesses across the firm that are working to accelerate the transition to a net zero economy. Citi's engagement this year includes its ongoing work with the Government of Egypt across Ministries as it prepares to host COP27, advising on best practice solutions for the energy transition, climate funding structures, and strategies for Egypt's national Nexus of Water, Food and Energy (NWFE) platform. This work builds on Citi's continued commitment to reach net zero by 2050 and help support a responsible and inclusive transition, particularly in emerging markets, and to engage with key climate stakeholders on strategies for global climate action.
