In 2017, experts identified six key milestones – across energy, transport, land use, industry, infrastructure, and finance – that mankind must hit by 2020 in order to get a grip on global warming once and for all. They called this the ‘climate turning point’.
While positive progress has been made towards many of these milestones, the reality is that action across the board remains broadly insufficient to reverse climate change and tackle key critical environmental and social sustainability issues.
But all hope is not lost. In fact, there remains a huge, transformational opportunity for businesses to achieve a sustainable and profitable future, through a radical increase in ambition and relentless optimism.
edie’s 2020 Sustainability Leaders Forum and Awards are about chasing the positive and reaching the climate turning point. Returning on 4th and 5th February 2020, the two events will unite thousands of business leaders, sustainability figureheads, climate experts, policymakers, NGOs and investors with a collective purpose: to transform business, for good.
Be a part of the collective. Join us at the Sustainability Leaders Forum in 2020.
