SCALING SOLUTIONS FOR
A NEW ECONOMIC MAINSTREAM
Join us to scale solutions for climate change and a new economic mainstream that integrates business success and economic development with the regeneration of people, societies and nature.
The UN’s Paris Climate Treaty became a force in part because policy makers partnered with future-oriented economy leaders. Also this year, COP needs a bold and inspiring economic presence to advance concrete solutions.
Therefore, we convene senior leaders from business, agriculture, finance and investment to collaborate with experts and policy makers to meet our urgent challenges and opportunities.
