CEOs and business leaders from American’s most innovative, responsible brands will descend on New York to learn how to deliver THE business strategy for a commercially successful transition at The Responsible Business USA, April 19-20, 2022

Current projections equate to a 1.8-2.4C temperature rise by 2050, and social inequality has increased during the pandemic, with no sign of addressing the deeper structural issues causing that inequality. Both business and finance know the level of change that is required – and expected of them by key stakeholder groups – but they also must remain competitive and sustain commercial success.

Those that can successfully lead this transition will future proof their business.

The Responsible Business USA 2021 will convene 500+ American’s business and finance leaders to share their latest strategies, and more importantly, tangible insights into how to deliver a commercially successful transition that ensures your whole business, and value chain, is aligned with a 1.5C pathway, that investments are made in the areas that scale impact and bring new innovations to market, that take stated promises into both immediate and long-term actions, and that key stakeholders understand and trust your ambition. This is the only forum bringing together senior brand leaders in an intimate setting for two days of honest, frank and open discussion on how to deliver the required change.

Innovators and experts driving the clean, inclusive future already confirmed to speak include:

  • Scott Kirby, CEO, United Airlines

  • Ann Mukherje, CEO, Pernod Ricard North America
