2011 - B4E Climate Summit London
12 – 13 September 2011

Solving the global climate challenge will require a dramatic shift to transformative action moving beyond incremental change and reductions. A new clean industrial revolution has begun, with many of the world’s most progressive companies already implementing ambitious zero-based targets and closed-loop strategies for their business.

Themed “Reaching for Zero: Innovation, growth and the clean industrial revolution”, the B4E Climate Summit 2011 will gather thought leaders from industry, government and NGOs to share innovations and strategies for achieving zero-based targets and transformative climate solutions. Discussions will explore new technologies and business models that leading companies have established, as well as the necessary support and infrastructure needed to accelerate solutions towards the vision of a zero footprint future. The outcome of the Summit discussions will provide valuable input to COP 17, Rio+ and other global processes.

The B4E Climate Summit London will gather international leaders from business, NGOs, agencies and governments to share innovations and strategies for zero-based targets and transformative business solutions. Discussions will explore the new technologies, policies and infrastructure needed to reduce global emissions, power the green economy and ensure a sustainable future.

As an outcome of the summit, seven industry working groups will deliver a business message on climate action for the UNFCC COP17 in Durban. These will include – Building & Construction, Transport & Mobility, Food & Beverage, Renewable Energy, Consumer Goods, Forestry & Agriculture and Finance & Investment.
