2021 is set to be a pivotal year in the battle against climate change. The global green recovery efforts, President Biden’s focus on addressing the climate crisis, and the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference are all proof points that countries and corporations are setting aggressive net-zero goals. But how can they actually meet them? And how do we work together to repair, rebuild and renew for our climate future?
Building on the successful conversations and collaborations from the inaugural Bloomberg Green Festival, the 2021 Bloomberg Green Summit promises to deliver a solutions-oriented experience with experts who are operating at the crossroads of sustainability, design, culture, food, technology, science, politics and entertainment.
The summit will feature panels, presentations, fireside chats, interactive elements and more, fueled by the insights of Bloomberg’s journalism and proprietary data.
Repair: Building a Net-Zero Economy
Climate change poses important risks and opportunities for business and financial leaders globally. Many have embraced climate action as an opportunity, setting bold commitments and providing innovative solutions, repairing the economy and the planet. We’ll talk to top names in business and finance about why they’re committed to building a net-zero economy, and how they plan to get there.
Rebuild: Catalyzing a Green Recovery
In an effort to build back better, many governments have included green recovery measures in their crisis recovery packages. We’ll talk to top lawmakers, policy makers, and government executives about their plans to rebuild while also addressing climate change and what they see as the path forward.
Renew: The Global Commitment
Coming out of a global pandemic, and with COP26 scheduled this November, countries are focused on renewing their global commitment to limit warming to well below 2℃. What will this renewed global commitment look like, and what action will it inspire, from large corporations and investors, to small entrepreneurs and startups, down to individual consumers? We’ll feature the top influencers and activists calling for real climate action and what they’re doing to inspire and enact lasting positive change.
