195 international governments will meet on 30 November for two weeks of negotiations, with the aim of agreeing a global climate deal.
A successful deal will shape business decisions over the next 15 years and touch on all sectors of the economy, not just the energy system.
Finding climate change solutions is an issue that sits at the heart of our purpose of building trust in society and solving important problems. The climate deal will be a historic turning point on climate change and we will be there to contribute to policy debate and interpret their implications for our clients.
What is on the minds of UK CEOs for the year ahead?
Our 2016 global CEO survey shows that UK CEOs are holding their nerve in the face of an uncertain world, taking a longer-term view on growth and planning to hire more people than their European peers. Our findings, based on a global research sample that included over 100 UK CEOs, also confirm that UK CEOs perceive more threats to their businesses than three years ago, as geopolitical and cyber threats increase. Importantly the UK is retaining its status as an investment ‘hotspot’ for CEOs across the world.

You hear it called the digital revolution – the transformation of how we work and live, which is one of the great megatrends we believe will shape the world in the 21st century.
