The UN is seeking to establish partnerships in a number of areas, including sustainability, for the COP23 climate conference.

The climate change secretariat is inviting stakeholders, including the private sector, in support of the upcoming conference to be held in Bonn, Germany, from 6th to 17th November 2017.

Thousands of government delegates and leaders from all sectors of society will gather to move forward on implementing the Paris Agreement and increase ambition for successfully achieving sustainable development for all.

The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) says sustainability is one of the areas the secretariat is seeking partners for, which includes any technology or initative that can help measure and reduce the climate and overall environmental footprint of the conference.

Last week, former UN climate chief Christiana Figueres set out ambitions pre-2020 as part of a new campaign.
