The Economist Events’ Sustainability Summit – Technology and the Race for Resources

Austin, TX

SustainAbility joins editors of The Economist and more than 200 leading business executives, policy makers, investors, and critical thinkers to discuss the technological adaptations that a sustainable future require.

Glaciers are melting, sea levels are rising and atmospheric greenhouse gases have reached an all-time high. Climate change is creating risks and challenges for nearly every industry, and following the public sector’s inadequate efforts to address them, the private sector must now take the lead in protecting the planet from further destruction.

Companies need access to particular resources, so how can they come to set the standards for environmental protection? Building on these efforts, how can government leaders deliver on their promises of more sustainable practices through the creation of tighter regulations, new incentives and reforms? How can investors become equipped with the information they need to wisely allocate capital and manage risks, while still achieving a desirable return on investment? Finally, how can disruptive technologies push consumers and businesses to perceive sustainable development practices as a social responsibility and environmental imperative, but also a strategic business opportunity?

Gathering leading critical thinkers, policymakers and business leaders, the Sustainability Summit will offer strategies, ideas and solutions that help decision makers capitalise on technology to prepare for the future.
