BSR is a core partner of the Business and Climate Summit 2016, the leading annual forum for businesses, investors, and policymakers on climate action, which will be held in London on June 28-29. It is where business and governments come together to create a roadmap for reaching net zero emissions over the next half-century. It will demonstrate how low-carbon strategies are good for business and good for growth, and it will build the partnerships needed to scale-up and accelerate the low-carbon transition.

The Summit is designed by business for business, with a convening network of partners that represent over six million businesses worldwide.

Forward-thinking companies with climate change at the heart of their business strategies will reap the benefits of high return on investments, while those without it will face greater risks—from policy, investors, and climate change itself.

On June 28, Senior Vice President Eric Olson will host and moderate the Summit’s session on freight, logistics, and corporate fleets.
