UN chief urges to joint actions from public and private actors

In his live-virtual speech at the UN Global Compact Board, Guterres also urged to make a just transition to a world of net zero-carbon emissions, leaving no one behind.

To achieve such goals, Guterres said, private finance for climate investments must increase significantly.

TH UNSG told Board members they can lead by transforming their own operations and industries, and asked them to use their influence to promote a ‘green’ government action, in other words, more friendly to the globe.

Investing in inclusive and sustainable economies would generate millions in profits, while transition to a circular economy in which materials are reduced, reused and recycled would create 6 million jobs by 2030.
