Agenda

Sustainability is now mainstream

As environmental pressures and social tensions roil across the world, expectations from capital markets and society on business accountability for delivering solutions for a net-zero, nature-positive and equitable world continue to accelerate. Sustainability is now mainstream and for business this means that the conversation has shifted from “why to engage” to “how to operationalize” commitments on these three imperatives. Today, every company must deal with its impact on climate change, biodiversity loss and mounting inequality. Regulatory requirements, changing consumer attitudes, investor demands and the rise of ESG-related litigation will accelerate the transformation of all businesses.

How can WBCSD members stay on track to achieve net zero emissions, become nature positive and contribute to an equitable society in an increasingly volatile economic and political context? How can they feed into global developments around ESG management and reporting all the while preparing to thrive through the changes to come?

Across three action packed days, the Liaison Delegate Meeting will:

  • facilitate co-creation of solutions to address these challenges through our work on carbon transparency, the Business Coalition to Tackle Inequality (BCTI) and the CFO Network;
  • offer a series of deep-dives to drive transformation and equitable value distribution across key value chains;
  • shed light on the changing landscape for capital market engagement and demonstrate how business, regulators and standard-setters are working together in reshaping the financial system. 

Key: Break-out sessions, Plenary sessions, Social events
