B4E CLIMATE SUMMIT 2013
NET ZERO, CLIMATE POSITIVE
The B4E Climate Summit 2013, themed “Net Zero, Climate Positive”, took a closer look at opportunities to reframe the sustainability debate. Speakers discussed the challenges and opportunities around business strategies that either strive for zero environmental impacts or aim for ‘net positive’ results where companies actively generate benefits for society and the planet. Delegates learned how companies impact watersheds positively, create more forests than they use, generate more renewable energy than energy consumed and pursue new business models and services that deliver vast customer carbon savings. High-level working groups brought together leaders from business, government and NGOs to commit to the collective action within sectors and define the policy changes needed to enable industry-wide transformation.
