Driving Action on the Race to Net Zero

Brussels, 8 November 2022

Reducing emissions must be part of our game plan today to make sure we can still connect people and travel for business tomorrow.

GBTA will be hosting its first ever Global Sustainability Summit on 8 November 2022 in Brussels, focusing on Driving Action on the Race to Net Zero.

This one-day, high-level event, will bring together experts, industry and policy leaders to outline concrete solutions to decarbonize business travel, in alignment with the Paris Climate Goals – and concurrently to the 27th UN Climate Summit (COP 27), taking place in Egypt from 7 to 18 November.

The Summit will foster connections and exchange by providing a forum for frank discussions about challenges and opportunities to drive climate action in the business travel sector.

  • The Race to Net Zero and COP27: how can industry lead the transformation
  • Decarbonizing business travel: opportunities for partnerships in driving impactful actions
  • Levelling the playing field: reducing fragmentation and delivering data transparency
  • Financing the transition: driving investments alongside ESG performance
  • Building climate resilience: how to prepare for the impact of climate change on our sector
