US Climate Action Summit 2023 - virtual registration

Climate Group is back and more ready than ever.

After a successful Climate Week NYC 2022, we're driving climate momentum at the US Climate Action Summit on April 19, 2023.

Join us in our mission to drive climate action. Fast.

What is the US Climate Action Summit?

Back for its third year, the US Climate Action Summit unites key leaders in business, politics and advocacy to drive US climate momentum during Earth Week.

We're hosting an intimate yet innovative program that favours participation, progress and accountability.

This is a platform to participate, not just discuss. This is a place to implement ideas, not just talk about them. We need a little less conversation and a lot more action.

We’ve designed a participant-led platform that drives measurable outcomes on climate policy and business action, with attendees at the heart of the agenda.

Watch our announcement video here.

What's the agenda format?

Four in-depth debates from a wide range of climate voices and perspectives on the biggest challenges facing US climate leadership.

These sessions will be hosted in front of a live audience with a focus on participation and open questions. Each session will be available for you to tune in virtually, open to all.

We'll be focusing on access and implementation, state-, business- and community-led leadership, and what's needed to maximize the benefits of the green economy.

You'll be able to ask questions to those on the stage and communicate with your peers within our streaming platform.

What's on the agenda?

11:00am – 12:00pm

From ‘Green’ to ‘The’: The next great economic transition  

In 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) was signed into law. $369 billion of financing, through new incentive-based policies to transition the green economy. And earlier, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (IIJA) became the largest ever investment in green jobs and infrastructure. What we do next to maximize and capitalize these historic investments is critical. How do we help the green economy become “the” economy?

In the opening session, we’ve invited world renowned economists and experts from US finance, policy and the labor to spotlight how these new investments will create a new economic architecture. What needs to happen immediately, and what must we avoid to guarantee long-term success?

1:30pm – 2:30pm

Power in the people: How to center people in the green economy 

The green economy is not just about emerging technology, new infrastructure, and lowering emissions. To succeed, it needs to improve people’s lives, create new opportunities, and transition to a more equal and just economy. The green economic transition must have people and community at its heart. How do we equitably distribute new climate investments, technologies, and adaptation strategies?

In our second spotlight session, we invite a wide range of stakeholders to talk about the green economy through the lens of people, access, and a just transition.

4:00pm – 5:00pm

Breaking down barriers: Turning ideas into infrastructure 

While the transition to a green economy is already underway, unlocking its full potential will also require breaking down bad systems and processes that have been holding us back. But this requires us to think smart. Do things differently. And find innovative tools and policy levers that can maximize this opportunity.

In our third session we’re inviting leaders who are charged with making the green economy a reality. We’re asking them, what’s stopping you from turning ideas into implementation. And asking how, and who, they need to come on board to get it all done.

5:00pm – 5:30pm

Change is hard. So, what can you do?

Making change is hard but needed. This is a critical moment in history, to maximise this opportunity to create real systemic changes that are good for climate and good for the economy. This is not just about renewables, we need every business, agency, department, and leader to play their role. We all have the agency to be the change we want to see in our economy. How do each of us, take specific and measurable actions to make change starting tomorrow? What can we learn from other movements and leaders?
