The Road to COP26: What Is the Role of Business in a 1.5°C Future?

Aug 25, 2021 8:30 AM ET

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. Where do we go from here?

This fall, countries will gather for COP26 to discuss global action, but in the meantime, we’re asking the big questions about the role of businesses in the fight against the climate crisis.

Join us on September 8 at 1 p.m. ET 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.


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

  • Jami Lewchik, Senior Brand Manager for Tazo Tea

  • Diandra Marizet, co-founder and executive director of Intersectional Environmentalist

  • Sabs Katz, co-founder and partnerships lead of Intersectional Environmentalist

Throughout the year, 3BL Forum: Brands Taking Stands – LIVE! convenes corporate 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.
