The Lebanon Climate Act is establishing a network of companies and institutions actively engaged in the fight against climate change. It aims at spurring economic growth while also creating value to society through action on climate.

The Climate Act was created in line with Lebanon’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) which set a target for 15% - 30% in CO2 emissions reduction, depending on availability of finance, technical support and capacity building.


  • Establish a network of companies and institutions actively engaged in the fight for climate change;

  • Catalyze the involvement of the private sector in the wider climate change community by providing a space for businesses to showcase and support climate action through concrete initiatives;

  • Establish partnerships between leading business organizations and Non-Governmental Organizations in key sectors

By joining the Lebanon Climate Act, companies will demonstrate their ongoing engagement to climate action. As part of this initiative, each company will set actions to reduce its environmental and carbon footprint, increase low-carbon investments, deploy more clean energy, and build more sustainable businesses and communities to tackle climate change.

The Lebanon Climate Act is also an opportunity to establish partnerships between leading business organizations  and Non-Governmental Organizations. The LCA focuses on businesses, who are showing leadership in acting on climate change in Energy, Water, Transport, Waste and Forestry and/or Agriculture, and who willing to commit to one or more innovative and practical climate initiatives to scale low-carbon solutions and increase the adaptive capacity of the Lebanese economy.

Those businesses can collaborate on intitives with Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) who have planned critical climate initiatives and are in need of a concrete support from one or more business organizations from the public sector to implement their presented initiatives.

The Lebanon Climate Act was designed with support from the UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme and the generous support from the European Union and the German Government (Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
