September 8 - The Road to COP26: What’s the Role of Business in a 1.5°C Future?

By 3p Editors
climate change

The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) delivered a “code red for humanity." Global temperature rise has reached 1.5 degrees Celsius, and human activity is “unequivocally” to blame.

As TriplePundit’s Leon Kaye wrote last month in the wake of that report, “… the key takeaways are plain: The consensus is that climate change is here, it’s undeniable, the outlook is bad, and while there is hope, some of the damage already or to be inflicted cannot be rolled back.”

So, where do we go from here?

This fall, countries will gather for COP26 to discuss global climate action, but in the meantime, the team here at 3p and 3BL Media is asking the big questions about the role businesses can take in the fight against the climate crisis.

To that end, join us on next Wednesday at September 8 at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT, 6:00 p.m. BST) for the third installment of 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands - LIVE!. We’ll talk with leaders from top companies about how businesses can cut their own emissions, engage with governments, suppliers and peers on climate-smart policies and ensure climate justice for at-risk communities worldwide. We’re pleased to offer this event for free.


3BL Forum

During this session’s 45 minutes, you’ll hear from senior leaders, including:

  • Thomas Lingard, global sustainability director of Unilever
  • Emma Stewart, Netflix’s first sustainability officer
  • Clinton Moloney, managing director of sustainability solutions at Engie Impact
  • Rebekah Moses, head of impact strategy for Impossible Foods
  • Caroline Bushnell, vice president of corporate engagement at the Good Food Institute
  • Diandra Marizet, co-founder and executive director of Intersectional Environmentalist
  • Sabs Katz, co-founder and partnerships lead of Intersectional Environmentalist
  • Jami Lewchik, senior brand manager for Tazo Tea

Throughout the year, 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands – LIVE! has convened various companies’ leaders from top brands for a series of sessions meant to explore "the why" and "the how" behind business leadership at this critical moment in history.

Again, register at no cost here.
