The Responsible Business Summit Europe (26-28 May, London) will bring together 750+ of the world’s leading CEOs, heads of sustainability, communications and ESG investors to share how to lead the decade of action. From educating the board and influencing internal critics to addressing scope 3 emissions and building a new relationship with investors, the summit is geared towards delivering ‘how-to’ best practice on what change looks like for both now and the 2030/2050 horizons.

Liam Dowd, managing director at Ethical Corporation – by Reuters Events highlights “There is increasing pressure on companies to take the lead and deliver action now on the key social and environment issues that we face. Business needs to work harder to build a sustainable future. As the world grapples with climate emergency, hyper-global inequalities and biodiversity loss, the pressure for business to act now has never been more important. BlackRock recently published a letter where Larry Fink Chairman and Chief Executive Officer declares “Every government, company, and shareholder must confront climate change”. But what are business doing and how are they planning to reach does tight goals? – this will be front and centre at this year’s summit.”

Agenda highlights include:

  • Climate adaption leadership: Build regenerative and resilient strategies that deliver market-level change on key climate risks and opportunities
