With COVID-19 impacting the world over, the 75th United Nations General Assembly Week (UNGA) will be a key moment in the 2020 calendar for the world to focus on social and environmental challenges and accelerate collaborations to meet the Global Goals.

This webinar is part of a series of virtual events, which Business in the Community (BITC) is running to elevate the conversation and drive action on how business can Build Back Responsibly.

About the webinar
Join us to share your thoughts with a diverse panel of business game changers on their experiences and reflections, and how they plan to take these actions forward in their businesses to Build Back Responsibly.

Audience
This webinar is open to both members and non-members of BITC. It is suitable for environment/sustainability practitioners and managers, and responsible business leaders.

Background
The impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented, not just in the tragic impact on lives, or the disproportional impact it has had on the most disadvantaged communities, but also in terms of what we have seen can be achieved. As lockdown restrictions ease and we all negotiate living in a ‘new normal’, we must not lose the opportunity to understand what factors made change happen at a pace previously unimaginable. Also how to apply this to address the underlying inequalities and climate challenges that existed before COVID-19.

To drive this, BITC has held conversations with over 100 business leaders and a further 500 practitioners and partners to understand what COVID-19 has taught us about how we could turn ambitions into action. Now is our moment to not simply slip back to a new normal, seeing the last few months as a series of heroic acts, but instead to seize the opportunity to accelerate action.
