Annual event

Bi-Monthly Events

Bi-monthly hybrid 1-day events deep-dive into the various topics. Each event topic has its own working group that meets on an ongoing basis throughout the year to discuss and formulate strategies associated with the specific topic.

  • MARCH -

    • Event Title - "Unifying Global Governance for Planetary Solvency: Rewriting the Rules for Regulating Corporate Behavior"

      • Why This Topic? - Effective global governance is essential to secure  planetary solvency by preventing regulatory arbitrage and ensuring that corporations do not permanently degrade ecosystems or human well-being. This involves harmonizing regulations internationally to integrate sustainability principles (as defined by the 3 laws) into corporate governance frameworks. By establishing robust standards and enforcement mechanisms, global governance can create a level playing field where businesses are free to prioritize profitability and growth, but within environmental and social limits. This proactive approach mitigates risks associated with unsustainable practices, fostering a sustainable future for all.

  • MAY -

    • Event Title - "Aligning Finance with Planetary Resilience: Redesigning Economic Activity for Sustainability"

      • Why This Topic? - Aligning finance with planetary resilience requires the integration of clear regulations that establish an uncompromising connection between long term solvency and financial decision-making. This ensures that investments and economic activities support ecological health and societal well-being without exceeding environmental limits. By incentivizing sustainable practices and responsible investments, financial systems can contribute to long-term resilience against climate change and environmental degradation. This shift not only safeguards natural resources but also enhances economic stability and promotes inclusive growth, aligning financial interests with planetary sustainability goals.

  • JULY -

    • Event Title - "Redefining Success: Shifting Corporate Metrics Towards Planetary Solvency"

      • Why This Topic? - Redefining corporate success metrics entails a well thought-out carrot and stick approach that broadens performance evaluations to include environmental and social impacts, alongside traditional financial measures. This holistic approach ensures that corporate activities contribute positively to ecosystems and communities, without compromising their ability to thrive. Transparency and accountability in reporting are crucial, enabling stakeholders to assess companies' contributions to sustainability and planetary health. By prioritizing sustainable profits over short-term gains, businesses can drive meaningful change towards a resilient and equitable global economy.

  • SEPTEMBER -

    • Event Title - "Re-imagining Innovation for Planetary Resilience: Shaping Human Environment"

      • Why This Topic? - Re-imagining innovation for planetary resilience involves developing and implementing sustainable technologies and urban planning strategies that enhance ecological health, human well-being and perhaps most importantly, adaptability to our changing climate. This includes investing in renewable energy, sustainable infrastructure, and resilient urban designs that mitigate climate risks and promote environmental sustainability. By encouraging innovation in sustainable practices, societies can adapt to environmental challenges while improving quality of life. This proactive approach supports a harmonious relationship between human activities and the natural environment, ensuring long-term planetary resilience and societal well-being.

Bi-monthly events

Roundtables

2-hour hands-on working session events held in the alternating months between the bi-monthly events. Roundtables bring together the various working groups working on policy papers and legislation, etc. associated with a specific Club topic. These closed events are facilitated by the Club organizers supporting each topic's working group coordinator. The roundtables provide all group members with an important opportunity to update about overall progress by the various working groups within the topic they are engaged with, as well as the opportunity to express themselves regarding topic and/or working group direction, while also ensuring active progress toward the group and Club objectives.
