Ambition to Action: Mobilizing for a Decade of Decarbonization

Thank you to all who made our first-ever virtual Climate Leadership Exchange a success! The Exchange took place on May 25, 2021 and brought more than 270 sustainability professionals together to address climate change through policy, innovation, and business solutions. Participants heard from business and government leaders over three high-level plenary sessions and engaged in small-group ‘climate conversations’ covering topics like decarbonizing the transportation sector, ensuring a green and just recovery, and meeting ambitious goals through deeper climate collaboration.
