Climate Leadership NOW

You can watch this event on Climate Group's Facebook Watch page.

Join the We Mean Business coalition and the hosts of Outrage + Optimism for a lively series of discussions on what business needs to do to lead on climate in the 2020s.

The We Mean Business coalition has been at the forefront of business leadership on climate change since it was founded in 2014. During this time, climate action has consistently proven itself to make good business sense. In parallel, our understanding about how the economy can decarbonize has evolved at pace.

Despite these positives, the climate crisis remains a present danger. With every day that passes, the significance and immanence of the threat becomes increasingly apparent. The need for corporate climate leaders has always been urgent. Now more than ever.

The next decade will be crucial to put us on track to decarbonize the economy. Business does not claim to have all the answers nor cannot it do everything. But, the power of corporate leaders to help accelerate the pace of change is profound.

This discussion marks the launch of a new paper from the We Mean Business coalition that lays out what corporate climate leadership needs to look like in the 2020s.
