CC FORUM

Global Investment
in Sustainable Development
4 - 7 December 2024
Paris
Slide Background
CC FORUM
is the leading global conference
laser-focused on investment in sustainability

Whilst the current geopolitical conflicts coupled with the energy and food crises in the wake of Covid19 pandemic are considered to be critical threats jeopardising corporations and industries, nothing can be regarded as a more existential one than climate change.

More than ever the global situation has highlighted the interconnectedness and interdependence of the modern world. An understanding has emerged that it is no longer possible to continue to do ā€œbusiness as usualā€ and that a new breed of entrepreneurs, more environmentally and socially responsible, should be fostered in order to preserve our planet as we know it today.

We as a generation have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rethink the worldā€™s existing paradigm.

Investors are becoming increasingly aware of how their impact can affect the world around them and are eager to invest in the ways that reflect their concern and respect for environment, for human dignity and for responsible corporate behaviour.

The mission of CC Forum ā€“ an investment conference which is 100% dedicated to investment in sustainability ā€“ is convening the top business leaders, policy makers and public figures and defining the course of action we should collectively take to confront the existential challenges we are all facing today including climate change, fossil-fuel-based economies, overpopulation and poverty to name but a few. Therefore, in accordance with Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations, its topics centre around investing in Environment, Renewable Energies, Emerging Technologies, Healthcare, Education, Social Inclusion and Philanthropy connecting the brightest startups to the savviest of investors.

CC Forumā€™s previous editions were inter alia held in London in October 2019 with a written royal greeting from the late HM Queen Elizabeth II, in Monaco in September 2020 under the High Patronage and with the participation of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and in the Kingdom of Bahrain under the auspices of HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the Crown Prince & Prime Minister in March 2022.

The goal of the X edition of Climate Change Forum in Paris is exploring the prospects, challenges and business opportunities of investment in sustainable development as the world is entering its next stage of development.

It is a great honour for me to attend CC Forum and receive the prestigious CC Forum's Award.

Mission

Dear Friends,

May I have the honour of welcoming each and every one of you to CC Forum’s upcoming 2024 – 2025 editions “Investment in Sustainable Development”.

Here we seek to fulfill multivarious missions.

CC Forum has been conceived as the world’s leading platform where governments present their innovative new strategies; where inspirational scientists relay to the world their revolutionary discoveries; where large corporations and small companies alike make global announcements, and where the brightest startups connect to the savviest of investors.

CC Forum is, simultaneously, considered a place where the world’s most formidable thought leaders are granted a unique opportunity to express their very opinions – even when they are highly controversial, and even when they are the polar opposites to what have become standard norms. We, at the CC Forum firmly believe that it is only via public discussions, debates and brainstorming that some of the most complex issues society is facing today can be resolved. It is where iron sharpens iron. Hence a vast range of topics covered, stretching from Climate Change, Renewable Energy and Waste Management to Impact Investment, Social Inclusion and Philanthropy with the emphasis on how emerging technologies can help humanity resolve the existential issues we are all facing today. CC Forum thus facilitates change by virtue of its elite and foremost thinkers in the sphere where high technology crosses finance.

Here is the paradox that has mesmerized and engaged me, my friends. Mankind has organically chosen to go down the avenue of technological progress, which, in my firm belief, is largely why we are now facing existential environmental problems. Yet it is inevitably a veritable fact that technologies again are called upon today to resolve these self-begotten issues in order to achieve the catharsis we collectively strive for humanity to survive and prosper. We have, thus, come full circle. So, dear esteemed thought leaders, the ultimate mission of this, our CC Forum is to contribute to cracking down on the fundamental issues of human development, point blank.

NOW, my friends, is the time to act. We do not have much time to spare.
