This event will highlight private sector and public-sector climate leadership in Silicon Valley to a global audience. In addition to sharing best practices and thought leadership from the region, participants will re-commit to existing climate goals, and announce ambitious new targets to advance the global climate agenda. This one-day event will complement the Global Climate Action Summit hosted in San Francisco and will help turn the world’s attention to the Bay Area – a region that prioritizes climate leadership through innovative partnerships with NGOs, the private sector, and the public sector alike.
