The Economist's Sustainability Summit 2017

The CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems is for the second year in a row a supporting organization of The Economist's Sustainability Summit, to take place in London on March 23-24, 2017.

The issue of sustainability is a multifaceted one, and cannot be tackled by policy makers or scientists alone. Finding ways to integrate environmental and social sustainability requires collaboration across sectors, not least between research institutions and the private sector.

But what do we as scientists know about how businesses can evolve and develop their practices to improve their environmental footprint? What are the challenges and opportunities that multinational companies face in implementing such changes across borders?

The summit will bring together leading critical thinkers, policy makers and business leaders, including WLE Steering Committee Chair, Johan Rockström. Rockström will set the scene for the summit by giving a talk on operating within the ‘planetary playing field’.
