The climate emergency is being felt across the US and its effects are already apparent. From wildfires on the West Coast and flooding on the South and Eastern Coast, all of which are having a devastating impact on communities. Business must take action now.

It’s time for corporate executives to focus on a new business future with climate, social equality and racial issues front and center. This transition is the largest investment opportunity in history and the new Administration marks a critical change in our efforts to tackle generation defining issues. This renewed vision will only be achieved if business seizes the opportunity and leads action both within the US and further afield.

This is the new business imperative. It’s time we move beyond setting goals and move to enacting strategies that deliver change and action. We need a new business model, economic system and new definitive actions that create long-term value for business, its stakeholders and the wider society.

Reuters Events: Responsible Business USA 2021 will convene 4,000+ business, policy, investment and sustainability leaders, who are driving change, to share new strategies and solutions on HOW business can innovation, invest and collaborate to lead a new business future. Join us on November 16-18 as we ensure greater action and leadership in 2022 and beyond.
