Meet the Moment. Build the Future.

BSR Virtual Conference | October 20-23, 2020

This year, we will convene our community at a moment of tremendous uncertainty and turbulence, driven by a common task: to find solutions to the problems of the present, while laying the groundwork to build a truly equitable, resilient, and just future for all.

While we would much prefer to gather in person, we are excited to shift to a digital, virtual experience that will connect our global community, bring new voices to the fore, and facilitate new partnerships and initiatives.

Our theme this year is “Meet the Moment. Build the Future.” As we come together for three days of substantive and actionable discussions, we are all dealing with the urgent need to address the profound transformation of the business climate, the unprecedented economic and public health challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the tragic reminder of the systemic barriers and racial injustice that still plague society.

Subscribe below to stay informed on the latest program developments. We look forward to “seeing you” October 20-23!

A Truly Global Agenda

2020 has accelerated underlying changes reshaping business, recast existing issues in a new context, and delivered new issues that will define our era.

Our virtual event gives us the added benefit of convening a truly global conversation, spanning multiple time zones and regions and delivered via broadcast-quality streaming video, which will be recorded and available on demand to registered participants for a full year. Plenaries, breakout sessions, and networking events will take place in small blocks of time per day by region, allowing you to tune in live without missing an entire day of work. BSR20 will present the most pressing topics in sustainable business, giving participants and speakers the chance to collaborate and share ideas in an entirely new way.
