RBSNY Update

We’ve had a phenomenal response to RBSNY2019. It’s the biggest and best we’ve ever produced with more CEOs, Mayors, sustainability heads, investors and NGOs confirmed to attend. 400 business leaders will descend on New York on March 18-19 to outline their vision for the future for an unmissable two days. We have limited space left at the venue, book now to ensure you’re at the sustainability event of the year


The time to act is now. With a lack of national leadership, business must lead the way to a sustainable, clean and responsible future. The environmental threats facing the planet are unprecedented, and it’s up to businesses and investors to provide the blueprint for innovations which will create a global economy fit for purpose and one that prospers. The Responsible Business Summit New York is North America’s leading platform where global businesses gather to create partnerships, share practical insights and shape the future sustainability agenda. This year 400+ CEOs, business leaders, Investors, Government representatives and NGOs will discuss how to lead a sustainable future for all.

Key Themes for 2019

Our aim for #RBSNY is to build a platform where senior practitioners from across the US meet and share practical ideas on how their businesses can lead the change to a new sustainable future. There is no fluff, just actionable insights and honest discussions on the challenges and opportunities ahead.

  • Implementing the TCFDs
  • Plastics – Reduce, reuse, recycle, replace
  • Human Rights reporting
  • Ambitious SDG-driven partnerships
