Business is at a crucial turning pointâ€”the short pause between the Copenhagen meeting and enforcement of the Carbon Reduction Commitment in April 2010.
Sustainability leaders urgently need to build workable strategies for climate change while continuing to satisfy customers, shareholders and the wider community. We are facing the most significant programme of investment and change in our lifetime. There's not much time to get it right.
How are businesses responding to the sustainability challenge? The Third Annual Sustainability Summitâ€”After Copenhagen: How can business face the climate change challenge provides fresh thinking and thought-provoking commentary from top thinkers and policymakers. It will bring together up to 150 business leaders to discuss the real implications of climate change on their business. Hear from pioneers: the strategies they've used to become carbon-neutral while maintaining competiveness, and the false trails they've learned to avoid. Share insights from the world's most influential thinkers and policymakers, as well as the latest research from the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). There'll be case studies from corporates on cutting-edge sustainability initiativesâ€”both inspirational and informative.
Those leading the debate include:
â€¢ Gareth Llewellyn, Head of Sustainable Development, Anglo-American
â€¢ Julian Walker-Palin, Head of Corporate Policy for Sustainability and Ethics, ASDA
â€¢ Roger Harrabin, Environment Analyst, BBC
â€¢ Richard Tarboton, Energy and Carbon Programme Director, BT
