As the risks arising from climate change become more and more destructive for the business, the importance of developing new strategies and supportive climate policies is increasing. Climate strategies can take many forms, from setting science-based goals to 100% renewable energy plans, to climate positive or carbon negative targets. The areas that the business should focus and prioritize in order to avoid a climate crisis, such as climate-friendly investments in production, climate policies, the durability of supply chains against climate risks will be discussed in Green Business 2021.

A global energy transformation is underway. Energy sector has great opportunities in reducing the effects of climate change, creating economic growth and employment. The roles and goals of the key players in the energy transformation, energy efficiency, renewable energy strategies, new paradigms of energy management systems that regulate and encourage practices in this field will be discussed in Green Business 2021.

Businesses and governments are now aware that they need to significantly reduce their carbon footprint to avoid a climate crisis. This type of large-scale business transformation will be full of with operational challenges and risks – but it will also lead to new partnerships, products, and profit. While preparing a comprehensive transition plan, crucial steps to be taken, challenges, risks, opportunities and best practices will be discussed in Green Business 2021.

Sustainable business is developing faster than ever before, with new concerns and concepts emerging, and the expectations from the business world are that change comes from the top. Sustainable business models reshaped in the 21st century, strategies adapted according to the new economy, the development of competent boards and sustainability leadership roles in environmentally and socially conscious companies will be scrutinized in Green Business 2021.

Low carbon infrastructure is estimated to reach $90 trillion by 2030. The current market for clean technologies is worth $1.15 trillion. The ESG investment has turned into a business of over $30 trillion. In order to take advantage of this important opportunity and align investor expectations with corporate needs, investments, financial instruments, green funds, prominent applications and financial products that will accelerate the transformation into a cleaner, more resilient economy will be discussed in Green Business 2021.

Circular economy is a bold vision for tomorrow and today, empowering business leaders to increase resilience, reduce climate risk and unlock new business opportunities. Instead of linear models; new models, innovative approaches and technologies, which include reuse, recycling and efficient waste management and the use of waste by recycling, and policies that encourage resource efficiency, which are necessary for the circular economy, will be discussed in Green Business 2021.

In our rapidly changing and developing world, companies change and revise their business models and strategies with technological and innovative developments in order to respond to changing consumer needs. New business models, strategies, digital transformation, digitalization and the bilateral interaction of the business world will be discussed by sustainable business leaders in Green Business 2021.

Cities, which are responsible for the vast majority of greenhouse gas emissions, are key players that play an important role in in the battle for a stable climate. With the awareness of the critical importance of implementing effective policies in all urban and rural areas, examples of sustainable development at local level, sustainable cities of tomorrow that reduce emissions while creating employment and strengthening the industry will be discussed in Green Business 2021.
