"For us at The Weather Company, climate change is not a political issue; it is a scientific issue – and the science tells us we have to act," said David Kenny, The Weather Company Chairman & CEO. "We are committed to telling the climate story and increasing climate change awareness and we are proud to partner with The Climate Group as we continue to inform our viewers and users about the science behind this important issue."
Amy Davidsen, The Climate Group Executive Director US, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with The Weather Company for the fifth Climate Week NYC. Their commitment to analysing the topical issues of climate change and low carbon leadership, and the consequential impacts on America’s economic opportunities and energy security is to be admired.”
Climate Week NYC has become one of the most important annual global forums on climate change and the potential of the low carbon economy; leaders gather in New York City for a week-long agenda packed with diverse public-facing events and high-level meetings.
The Climate Group is the top global low-carbon leadership organization; it is working internationally with a coalition of companies, states, regions, cities and public figures to inspire and catalyse leadership for a ‘Clean Revolution’: a low carbon future that is smarter, better and more prosperous.
