Accelerate the transition

Industry roundtables

    Loop: Roundtable

    From vision to action

    The Sustainable Markets Initiative brings together business leaders and decision-makers in a series of roundtable discussions. 

    During 2020, hundreds of people have taken part in the industry and issue-specific roundtables. With many more events planned, an even larger number of people is set to join the discussion in the years to come.

    The private sector leading the way

    Global warming, climate change, and loss of biodiversity are the greatest threats humanity has ever faced. The convergence of these threats undermines the very fabric of our society, and to secure our future and prosper, we need to evolve our economic model. Changing our current trajectory will require bold and imaginative action, together with determination and decisive leadership from the private sector.


    Towards a sustainable industry transition

    Industry actors are a necessary agent of change in the transition towards a sustainable future. Industry Roundtables and Task Forces convene and guide a series of industry, investor, and academic Roundtables to establish Industry Task Forces made up of the 'coalition of the willing' to drive action on accelerating, at a global scale, sustainable industry transition and rapid decarbonization ahead of 2050.

    A strong commitment to driving change

    Industry Roundtables and Taskforces unlock the potential of the private sector by empowering industry leaders to take concrete, integrated actions to fundamentally progress sustainable industry transition. Industry Taskforces chart their transition roadmaps and commit to tangible actions by applying their knowledge and experience to find solutions, identify game changers, and overcome barriers and risks to transition.
