Sustainability Week US

Innovation. Diversity. Impact. Growth.

The Economist’s Sustainability Week US convenes industry leaders, sustainability professionals, investors, policymakers and academics for robust debate and dialogue.

Following the change in administration in the US, this event examines how climate-related policy and regulatory change will impact US business and society. In addition to climate-related initiatives, businesses can showcase how they are helping to solve inequalities around gender, race and opportunity. Through case studies, interviews and discussions The Economist’s Sustainability Week provides actionable insights and solutions to help businesses navigate their sustainability journeys.

They start the week on Day 1 looking at how we can unlock investment and measure ESG performance, Day 2 is about emissions and the race to net zero.
