Virtual Event - Bloomberg Green Festival

The Bloomberg Green Festival will take place on September 14th - 18th, 2020. This is a 5-day immersive experience featuring global voices and proprietary insight including the Bloomberg Green Data Dashboard. It will be a true thought leadership experience operating at the crossroads of sustainability, design, culture, food, technology, science, politics and entertainment. Built to foster solutions-oriented conversations, the five-day festival will feature a mix of panels, presentations, fireside chats, and interactive elements. Climate action and sustainability are the core issues of the festival which will focus on four predominant themes: Business & Finance, Policy & Influence, Science, Data & Insights, Arts & Culture.

Business & Finance

Climate change poses important new risks and opportunities for business and finance leaders. Many have embraced climate action as an opportunity, providing innovative corporate and finance solutions that are creating a positive impact on both their business and the planet. From the manufacturing life-cycle to strategic investment, we’ll talk to top names in business, markets and finance about how and why they’re making investments in climate action.

Policy & Influence

Policy incentives are a key tool in the battle against climate change, and the economic recovery packages being created by governments globally have provided an unprecedented opportunity to move the needle forward on climate action. We’ll talk to top lawmakers, policy makers, and government executives about their plans to address climate change and what they see as the path forward.

Science, Data & Insights

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has proven that “scientific evidence for warming of the climate system is unequivocal.” Responsible, collective decision making can only be made when there is an agreed upon set of facts upon which to base assumptions about the future, and it is imperative that verified scientific voices be elevated and reported accurately. We’ll engage top scientists working at the edge of change to get their inputs on what can still be done to mitigate the worst of climate change effects.

Arts & Culture

Cultural factors have considerable influence on the public mindset about environmental action. As viewpoints shift, we’ve witnessed incremental changes in climate policy, consumption patterns and corporate practices — but much work remains to be done. Join us as we talk to top cultural influencers and activists about why they are calling for real climate action and what they’re doing to enact lasting positive change.
