If you thought the Paris climate summit had fallen off the agenda after last month's success, think again. Here in Davos, we recognize many of the same business leaders we saw in the French capital. Climate change and resource scarcity are fully on the World Economic Forum's agenda.
The private sector knows that the Paris accord had its shortcomings. National commitments fell far short of goals to limit the global average temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius, let alone 1.5 degrees. And there was no explicit move towards carbon pricing. But the direction of travel has been set and business leaders know that much now falls to them.
