The post-covid sustainability agenda: revolution, retreat or return to normal

July 7, 2020 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

the economist webinar

Covid-19 has suspended business and caused a hiatus in the human activity which has brought a lot of good to the environment: toxic air pollutants fell, Venice’s canals are cleaner, increased activity in wildlife as never been seen in a long time.

It gave humans a sharpened awareness for the potentials of catastrophe if global warming persists at the current levels. Business leaders should understand that sustainability is more than just good ethics but a key to a resilient business model. Can the recent disruption spur positive action?


As an edition of The Economist Sustainability Week Insight hour series, this one-hour online event features the UBS Group chairman, Axel Weber and The Economist’s business affairs editor, Patrick Foulis to discuss:

  • How the response to COVID-19 could be a call to action on climate change
  • How to keep climate change at the top of the global agenda post-pandemic
  • How the pandemic will affect sustainable investing in the longer term
  • Why banks should lead in the fight against climate change—and what will happen if they don’t
