Themes

Everyone who comes to the summit, whether they be speakers, attendees, brands, athletes, academics, explorers; we are in all in the same business of conserving our precious home. These themes are therefore universal, interwoven and equally important. We cannot consider one without the other, and they feature across all three days in different ways.

“The Blue Earth Summit is a place to discover a modern way of working that is good for the planet and helps us retain and inspire staff. The final question we ask ourselves before starting a project: is this going to make the world better for other people’s grandchildren? And if the answer is yes, we do it; if it’s no then we don’t. Everyone thinks sustainability is really complicated but if you ask yourself this question, then it’s not. It also ensures long-term thinking which is always better for the environment.”

Kresse Wesling CBE
