July 21| THE ZERO SHIFT

Virtual

Since the launch of the Race to Zero campaign, the world has been journeying towards zero in a  to halve global emissions by 2020. At this year’s ICS summit, we not only refer to limiting global temperature to 15C, but wastes, packaging, and inequality are just as worthy of our attention and have equal significance on the sustainability equation. While pledging to achieve carbon net-zero by 2050 is a worthy goal, what this does, however, is zoning in on just one single element of the whole sustainability equation. 

The theme, “The Zero Shift”, applies the net-zero approach to all aspects of sustainability, that means, to the entirety of the sustainability equation, giving equal weight to zero emission, zero waste, and zero inequality. Through working together, we can help protect the future of the next generations to come and the way we change for good.

11th Annual Building Resilience Conference will feature two days of thought-provoking sessions and insightful conversations. After two years of virtual programming, they  look forward to hosting a vibrant, in-person event with action-oriented roundtables, engaging breakout sessions, and substantive discussions from the main stage. The event will also feature various networking opportunities, including a Resilience Network Reception. 

As in previous years, leaders engaged before, during, and after disasters will share perspectives to help inspire the shared commitment to resilience domestically and globally. Our way of life depends on the reliability of systems and institutions to perform under duress, disruptions, and disasters. Unfortunately, this dependency and system interdependency is often forgotten until a crisis is underway or on the eve of a disaster. Now is the opportunity to strengthen partnerships before the next crisis occurs.
