Inspire. Drive Action. Accelerate Innovation

Failure to limit global warming will cause significant disruption to business. No economy is immune to the impact, and no action is not an option.

Stanford University study predicts that by the end of this century, there is a more than 75% chance that limiting warming to 1.5 °C would reduce economic damages and a more than 60% chance that the accumulated global benefits will exceed US$20 trillion. But, the global pursuit towards a low carbon economy, and achieving net-zero is a huge undertaking.

Solving the climate risk challenge requires a significant, and coordinated private and public-sector effort. Reuters IMPACT is a free virtual global conference that brings together world leaders, big business and forward-thinking pioneers to inspire, drive action and accelerate innovation towards the global economy’s top priority: the climate emergency. 

No matter what role you perform, or the size of your organization, Reuters IMPACT will help you identify how you can influence business driven climate action.
