The Sustainability Summit

15 Mar. 2016 • 00:00 - 00:00 • London, UK

The Sustainability Summit 2016 will look at how short-termism dominates the global mind-set, with the need to achieve growth in the present often overshadowing critical preparations for our future. However the call for transformational, systemic change is growing louder as is the demand for a world in which our people and planet form the bottom-line of our economy. But what will serve to catalyse the shift in both policy and practice needed to bring about a sustainable future?

In the wake of COP 21 and the codifying of the post-2015 development agenda, the Sustainability Summit 2016 will bring together a diverse cross-section of leading stakeholders from industry experts to investors and policy-makers to next generation thought-leaders. Over two days, this high-level summit will provide a forum for candid discussion in an effort to progress and widen the sustainability dialogue. The agenda will explore the systemic drivers for change as well as practical steps being taken at the corporate and even the individual level. It will drive forward the emerging global agenda of the Anthropocene, where environmental and social sustainability intersect with economic prosperity.
