Liaison Delegate Meeting 2022
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 days, the Liaison Delegate Meeting 2022 offered inspiring insights from leaders across the world and facilitated the co-creation of solutions for companies to address these challenges effectively.
