New forestry initiative Emergent is holding its first New York Climate Week event

We wanted to take this opportunity to do something different and invite you to Emergent’s New York Climate Week webinar: Every Tool We’ve Got, on Friday, September 25th from 2-3PM EST. Emergent is linked to a couple of our Civil Society members and sustainable forestry is a passion for all of ResponsibleSteel’s secretariat.

Emergent is a non-profit organization with the sole mission of accelerating the speed and scale of tropical forest conservation to combat the climate crisis. With an international team of world-class climate experts and a board with deep private and public sector experience, Emergent is supported by a coalition including the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), the Rockefeller Foundation, and the Norwegian government’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI).

Addressing the current climate and deforestation emergencies require systemic and transformative solutions. Emergent was created to catalyze this type of action by supporting countries that successfully reduce deforestation, delivering climate impacts and other vital benefits for the people and animals that call the forest home.

The private sector has the potential and opportunity to mobilize its power to halt and reverse deforestation. But it’s not happening fast enough. The world loses 7 million hectares of tropical forest annually — the equivalent of 40 football fields a minute, every minute. And once it’s gone, it’s gone.

If interested please sign up as soon as possible, as the deadline is looming.
