Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development 2015

2015 will be a historic year for the world with a new treaty to be agreed in Paris that will limit greenhouse gas emissions and prevent global warming beyond two degrees, and the launch of new post-2015 sustainable development goals to ensure prosperity and environmental protection for future generations. Innovation and mindset shifts are critical for the systemic change we need to achieve these goals. While there may have been a gradual move from business-as-usual to change-as-usual, some organisations have embraced transformational changes such as new closed-loop and circular business models. At the same time, banks and asset managers are increasing their focus on sustainable finance. Are we at the tipping point for meaningful change? The 4th Responsible Business Forum on Sustainable Development will gather more than 600 business leaders, investors, NGOs and policy-makers from around the world to share innovations and agree on practical solutions for climate action and delivering the sustainable development goals.

  • Robertsbridge is an unconventional sustainability consultancy. Led by some of the best minds from business, NGOs, science, the academic world and public policy, we help companies all over the world create the right strategy to transform their model so that they continue to thrive while adapting.

     

    It is no longer an option for any business to remain credible – and in some cases legal – and not to build resilience to and strategies to manage climate change, resource depletion and social equity.

     

    We differ in that our advice is robust – and sometimes challenging. We are partner led – we do not deploy junior staff to deliver. We are particularly effective at helping businesses in adversarial situations. Our partners are well known commentators who touch every aspect of the sustainability agenda, who contribute to the global conversation on sustainability but who are willing to help those committed to change.

     

    We have worked for some of the world’s best known businesses and brands – as well as for some of those currently less known, in particular in the areas of emergent sustainable technologies.

     

    We operate in 15 markets worldwide through our network, Transition500.
