#Climate Change


The Global Climate Action Summit, taking place September 12-14, 2018, in San Francisco will bring people together from around the world to showcase climate action and inspire deeper commitments from national governments—and each other—in support of the Paris Agreement. Our efforts must lead to a climate turning point by 2020 in order to prevent the worst effects of climate change.

The goal of the 2018 Summit is to begin that momentum by:

  • Demonstrating how the tide has turned on the fight against climate change,
  • Showcasing climate action taking place around the world, and
  • Inspiring deeper commitments from everyone in support of the Paris Agreement.

BSR’s President and CEO Aron Cramer serves on the Summit Advisory Committee and is working closely with the We Mean Business coalition to galvanize new climate commitments from the business community. Join us to learn more about the Summit and opportunities to engage.

Speakers

  • Yassamin Ansari, Advisor and Global Climate Action Summit Coordinator, Mission 2020
  • Jamie Callahan, Director of External Affairs, Office of Governor Jerry Brown
  • Patrick Flynn, Senior Director of Sustainability, Salesforce
  • Aron Cramer, President and CEO, BSR
  • Kelly Gallo, Associate Director, BSR
