What to expect at Blue Earth Summit, including networking in the great outdoors, our impressive line-up of speakers, action-focused workshops, innovation-led roundtables, and world-leading investment opportunities.
Incorporating sustainability into your business is not only good for people and the planet – it’s good for your business too. Nearly 90% of consumers will be more loyal to a company that supports social or environmental issues. Prioritising people and the planet can give you a competitive edge, help you gain resilience, build trust, and make more profit.
At Blue Earth Summit, our goal is to help you tackle the most pressing issues head-on. Whether tapping into the expertise of our 160 speakers, networking with experts in their field on a trail run or during a surf at The Wave, or gaining insights, action, and inspiration from our series of workshops, roundtables, and panel talks.
Across three days in Bristol, we work together to find tangible solutions that can make a real difference to your business, the people, and the planet.

Forge meaningful connections with industry experts in the great outdoors.
Unlike traditional conferences, Blue Earth is the only purpose-driven summit for people in business inspired by the outdoors. Day three of the Summit is its very own outdoor expo, hosted at the Bristol Wave, the inland surf destination. Connect with industry experts and like-minded people on a trail run, during a surf, or over coffee in a relaxed and informal setting.
Discover actionable advice and tangible solutions to make a real difference.
Too many business summits are all talk and no action. Our dynamic program of content defines clear, tangible, and actionable solutions to help you develop more regenerative business practices. Forward-thinking and optimistic, we are a platform for the future where people, the planet, and profit work together, and no one gets left behind.
Tap into the expertise of 160 speakers and learn from industry leaders.
BBC Dragon Deborah Meaden, Channel 4 and ITV News reporter Keme Nzerem, and Riverford CEO Guy Singh-Watson are among our line-up of impressive speakers. Be inspired by adventurers, business leaders, conservationists, politicians, and thought leaders. All speakers are experts in their fields with unique perspectives, experiences, and environmental journeys.
Engage in discussions on pressing topics at the campfire stage.
Should businesses lead the change agenda? Does protest shift opinion? How do we hold companies to account for environmental and climate ambitions? These are just some topics we will cover in our diverse and inclusive panel talks. Moderated by independent journalists qualified to lead progressive discussions, the aim is to find practical solutions for the challenges that businesses are facing today.
