Jon Harman, head of Reuters IMPACT, said: “Reuters IMPACT creates a forum where global leaders from business, government, science and sustainability convene to tackle climate action head-on. Our industry-driven agenda, breaking news and networking will accelerate action and set the stage for the UN General Assembly just weeks later.”
Reuters Events also recently announced the launch of the Reuters IMPACT Climate Council, which brings together influential executives, leaders and changemakers and seeks to start a conversation about the climate challenge facing our planet and what actions are needed to address it. The Reuters IMPACT Climate Council will help shape the Reuters IMPACT agenda throughout the year and generate data-driven insight for the Reuters IMPACT community and the Reuters Events annual climate report.
