At Climate Week NYC, the SME Climate Hub will launch an unprecedented drive to recruit American small businesses to the global fight against climate change. We will use this moment to share details of new regional and national collaborations and engage in conversations around the importance of small business climate action.

For its launch event, the SME Climate Hub and America Is All In will unite leaders across businesses, government, and civil society to accelerate climate action amongst small and medium sized businesses. We’ll hear from small business leaders prioritizing climate action and learn about the opportunities and challenges they have faced in the process.

The session will consist of opening keynote speeches, followed by a panel that brings SMEs in conversation with corporate leaders, climate organizations, and government representatives to candidly discuss the support they need to move further, faster in an effort to halve emissions by 2030.
