An ambitious Climate Agreement and the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals have put forward a number of challenges to the way we work today, but they have also created a multitude of opportunities. This applies to how climate and development projects are designed, the funding that fuels them, and the way business considers sustainability.
“Gold Standard 2016: Grow to Zero" will help players from all sectors of the sustainability value chain increase their impact toward meeting the goals established in the Climate Agreement and the SDGs—from quick wins to long-term vision. Sessions will explore the trends, expectations and opportunities in the private sector, with a focus on how businesses can use environmental markets and instruments to contribute to and benefit from the SDGs.
Day 2 (15.04) will include a panel on Business trends in Sustainability, moderated by Renat Heuberger, CEO, South Pole Group. Speakers include, among others, Amandine Favier, Senior Advisor Sustainable Finance, WWF Switzerland, and Samuel Vionnet, Sustainability Expert and Founder, Valuing Nature.
The event will provide practical tools and guidance to help launch you forward on your sustainability journey. For more information about the event, please view the draft agenda.
