Responsible Business Symposium

Tuesday 21 September (15:00) - Thursday 23 September 2021 (18:00)

Charlotte Bagwell

Exterior of Birmingham Business School

Global challenges such as our climate crisis cannot be addressed by single stakeholder groups and demand that businesses, governments and civil society work together to address our global climate emergency.

As the UK prepares to co-host Cop26, the UN’s climate change conference seeking to stir urgent global climate action, we invite business researchers, responsible business practitioners, NGOs and scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to join us at our Second Responsible Business Symposium.

The aim is to share cutting edge research and research-informed best practice in tackling the impacts of climate change on business and society, so that we can tackle the societal changes needed to develop more sustainable and resilient societies and economies going forward.

The symposium will include a keynote speaker, discussion panels, poster and practitioner video exhibitions, cross-disciplinary networking breakout rooms and research presentations.

Keynote Speaker: Professor Sir Dieter Helm, Professor of Economic Policy at the University of Oxford and Fellow in Economics at New College, Oxford.
