Global challenges must be tackled collectively with global solutions. However, implementing solutions at scale can seem like an unconquerable challenge. As the tragedy on the horizon, climate change, draws nearer the world needs a vast portfolio of solutions to match its problems. We need new partnerships, new ways of collaborating and open innovation among all stakeholders.

At The Reuters Events Global Responsible Business 2021 we will bring together 5,000+ global leaders from CEOs, policy-makers, CSOs, and investors who are driving change worldwide.

Together we can innovate, invest and collaborate to tackle global problems and lead a clean and just future.

  • Climate Disclosures - Accurately reporting climate impacts, risks and future opportunities
  • Implementing Science Based Targets – Aiming for a 1.5-degree Target
  • From Pilot to Scale – How can Companies Mainstream a Circular System
  • Restoration of the Natural Capital

The investors perspective

There is no question that capitalism as we know it is dead.

CEOs have no choice but to have both a shareholder return & a stakeholder return—managing and measuring both.

Across the two days we’ll be hosting sessions and interactive ‘meet and speak’ opportunities where corporates, investors and others can share their ideas and challenges.

Only through open and constructive dialogue will we accelerate the required transformation.

Leading Speakers from the fortune 500 companies
