ClimateBiz hit the red carpet for the fifth annual Innovate4Climate conference. This year, over 8,000 delegates from more than 80 countries attended the World Bank Group's flagship climate event. That roster included a Who’s Who in Climate: Patricia Espinosa (Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework on Climate Change), Larry Fink (CEO, BlackRock) and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala (Director-General, the World Trade Organization), and so many more.
The three-day event is both a forward-looking conference as well as a check on where things stand in sustainability, alternative energy, jobs, and policy. It really is the Oscars of the climate scene! Join Shari and Denise as they break it all down: from plans and problems to the best and worst dressed.
"Making the right investment today certainly unlocks new short-term gains job creation & economic growth."
