GreenBiz Group is a media and events company that accelerates the just transition to a clean economy. Through events that galvanize, stories that amplify, peer networks that bond, and industry-leading analysis, we define markets and advance opportunities at the intersection of business, technology, and sustainability. We are a passionate team of people that builds and empowers communities to confront the threats of climate change and solve the thorniest challenges of our time. GreenBiz recognizes the inextricable link between climate change and social change and works across its platforms to connect the dots between equity, inclusion, and sustainability by centering justice as a cornerstone of a clean economy. We recognize the power of our platform and actively work to be intersectional in our content by prioritizing Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) across our conference programs and editorial coverage.

Purpose

Our goal is to ensure that GreenBiz Group — and the industry — reflects the world we live in and what we want to see.

Knowing that words alone are not enough, each of us is making a series of commitments about how we will operate our institutions so that they help achieve Inclusive Capitalism. These commitments are forward-looking statements based on current goals, expectations and assumptions, which are not guarantees of future performance.
