From Innovation to Implementation: Business and Sustainability Post-COP21

Peter Bakker, President, WBCSD

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

Our generation is the first to experience the real impact of climate change, and the last that can do something about it. With the climate negotiations in Paris (COP21) behind us, signifying a key commitment to bold climate action, Peter Bakker, President of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, will analyse how business can step up to tackle the challenge and be the driver for an ambitious new climate economy.

This will be the first event in a New Dutch Masters series of lectures on global issues and innovation by leading figures in the fields of politics, business, civil society and culture. The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception, hosted by the Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
