MIAMI, FLA., Feb. 08 /CSRwire/ - Companies Vs Climate Change recently had our hugely successful event last November with over 200 attendees at the Hyatt in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. www.solveclimatechange.com

This is known as “The B2B Climate Solutions Event”.  In 2017 the US event will be Nov 29- Dec 1 at the Hyatt Regency Miami. http://usa.solveclimatechange.com/index.php  Speakers confirmed from NRG, Ford, Subway, Bechtel and AMD.  At least 35 more speakers will be added.

According to CEO Jason Youner: “The response to the inaugural event was tremendous.  There was such enthusiastic word of mouth that we simply had to bring the event back, and launch a European event on top of that.” 

The Europe event will be 4-6 October at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Brussels.  http://europe.solveclimatechange.com/index.php

Confirmed speakers from Solvay, Ball, Siemens, Philips Lighting, CDP and ArcelorMittal. Many more to come.

Youner continues: “For us, CvCC Europe just feels like the natural progression.  CvCC Asia and Latin America will happen in the not too distant future.  There is no stopping the transformation of how companies do business in response to the climate crisis.”

In November we had speakers from TD Bank, Sealed Air Corp, Biogen, United, EnerNOC, Schneider Electric, Renewable Choice Energy, BSR, American Sustainable Business Coalition, EY, Brown Flynn, Nasdaq, Avery Dennison, Triple Pundit, RF Binder, Alaska Airlines, NYU Stern, Citigroup, SAP, GreenTrees, GZA, Bright Power and Ingersoll Rand. 

Other participating companies included Walgreens, Amtrak, ARRIS Group, Subway, Whole Foods, NRG Energy, NextEra, JM Family, Revolution Lighting, SunPower, Office Depot, Hunter Industries, Hertz, Royal Caribbean, Duke University, EDF and EcoVadis.

“Many attendees said that they were impressed by the number and diversity of attendees”, said Youner—“the event drew many kinds of professionals from numerous sectors, including corporate, service providers, government, academia and nonprofit.”

This is a second year event and our mission is genuine-we want to unite the world’s leading companies in the fight against climate change because the solutions must be BUSINESS DRIVEN.  

Certain things call for simplicity. This conference is about three things:

  1. Climate Change

  2. How can companies address climate change?

  3. How can companies collaborate to address climate change?

“We aim to be the “COP 23 of the Business Community” explains Youner. “and people really respond to our mission of being the forum for companies to unite and share best practices for solving climate.”

The agendas for both CvCC EU 2017 and CvCC US 2017 are under development and we are actively seeking corporate speakers and sponsors.
