'Companies Vs Climate Change' conference rallies Brussels audience

October 4-6 saw the inaugural European ‘Companies vs. Climate Change’ event, hosted in Brussels. Launched in the US in 2016, the Brussels version brought together a select group of around 150 senior leaders from a range of FTSE 500 companies based in Europe. The event was carefully curated to support practical learning and collective action by the business sector on climate change.

This reflects a widespread understanding among business leaders around the world that climate change is an issue that can’t be ignored, can’t be tackled alone and is an opportunity to innovate. The speaker lineup included senior leaders from leading companies including ArcelorMittal, the world’s biggest steel company, SAP, the world leader in enterprise software and other household names like Ericsson, Toyota, Carlsberg, Lidl and Walgreen Boots Alliance.
