|BONN – Leaders from the BlueGreen Alliance will be joined by The Business Council for Sustainable Energy at a press briefing during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change’s 23rd Conference of Parties (COP23) to discuss how the labor and environmental movements have joined with businesses to push for cities, states, and regions to take action on climate in the face of the Trump administration’s commitment to withdraw from the Paris agreement.
