2012 - B4E Climate Summit Berlin
21 – 23 May 2012
The green economy heralds a new era of opportunity, growth and sustainable development, placing a higher value on social equity, natural capital and ecological services. Delivering this will require an unprecedented level of collaboration, innovation and commitment to action. But what does this actually mean for business?
The B4E Global Summit 2012 in Berlin will define the role of business in shaping and building a global green economy. With the theme “Collaborate, Innovate, Act – Delivering the Green Economy”, the summit will explore transformative business models, smart cities and innovative financial solutions, with proposals for a better, more sustainable future. The outcome of the B4E Summit discussions will be shared with key decision makers at the 2012 Earth Summit in Rio.

B4E, Business for the Environment, is the leading international platform for dialogue and partnership solutions for the environment. The B4E summits bring together world leaders, CEOs, senior executives and industry experts to share ideas and commit to solutions, which address the most urgent environmental challenges facing the world today.
The acceleration and delivery of such transformative solutions will require a higher level of collaboration between business, government and NGOs than ever seen before. B4E aims to facilitate such collaboration through networking, informed discussion and the creation of innovative partnerships for change.
Issues addressed at the summits include energy, natural resource security, climate change, water management and biodiversity conservation, among others.
Since its inception in 2007, B4E has provided leaders from around the world a unique opportunity to shape game-changing solutions and influence the global agenda, leading toward a greener, more sustainable future.
Past B4E Summits were convened for the last five years in Singapore, Paris, Copenhagen, Seoul, Mexico City, Cancun, Jakarta and London by the United Nations, WWF, Global Initiatives and host Governments.
