A huge thanks to my colleagues, Annemarie Pompen, Floske Kusse, Armand Ferreira, Ambika Jindal, Joost van Dun and Femke Tijmstra for all of the hard work behind the scenes to make this event a success. And of course to Jason Youner and the (CvCC) team for delivering an excellent program. All the best in Miami!
Many thanks for organizing the event which was very inspiring.
The best Climate conference I have been to. Best content, best atmosphere, best participants. Many thanks.
I very much enjoyed to content as it focused on global issues rather than country specific. I give the event a 9 out of 10.
It was beneficial from an education standpoint as well as a networking perspective. Interesting to hear what steps companies are taking to reduce their emissions.
Was a good experience to join the companies vs. Climate change event, thanks for your initiative.
CvCC is a B2B meeting, going beyond simple display of how good we are, but also as this networks gets more familiar, a real value added to exchange about the difficulties we face, and some good insight how to overcome. Thank you Jason and your team for making this possible. I come back head full of ideas. Would I attend again? Yes!! and need to attract some of my colleagues there.
It was well organized and we had a lot of good conversations.
It was a great event. Thank you very much.
First of all companies represented make this event a really good opportunity to learn, networking and understand where exactly Top companies are heading too when it comes to sustainability. Very efficient, 2 days full of interesting speeches. Good speakers, intense but funny, well managed. Organization was perfect. Efficient and accurate. Easy and w/ benefit. Happy to join as said.
Companies vs Climate Change is the essential conference for those already investing in or thinking about investing in programmes to reduce your companies impact on climate change. Business leaders in sustainability shared valuable insights into the actions they are taking to reduce CO2 emissions within their supply chain. Lots of constructive content and inspirational thinking to take away and apply to your business. Lot’s of opportunities to breakout and discuss ideas with thought leaders in sustainability. Can’t wait for next year.
I liked that it was a small event, with a diverse group of participants but where you really felt you could approach everyone - and learn from each other. I would attend again.
I attended and presented at the Amsterdam event. I can thoroughly recommend making time to go to the Miami conference. Great audience and some great inspiring stories.
Thanks Jason for this very interesting and inspiring conference.
CvCC is an inspiring event for me. It is an excellent opportunity to exchange views with peers from different sectors.
The CvCC event was great to connect with like-minded professionals in similar roles. It was great to hear insights from other organisations and how they are dealing with some key issues, especially around communicating the value of sustainability and engaging with senior management.
It was a great event and I received a lot of positive comments from the participants as well. Good mix of topics and speakers (and mostly also very good speakers), diversity, well chosen time slots (that were not too long) and enough breaks for coffee and food. Good catering as well
It was great to hear examples of how corporates are integrating sustainability into their long-term strategies because it makes business sense, both in terms of mitigation and adaptation.
Excellent event to meet industry-leading professionals addressing climate change through business action
We truly enjoyed the conference, thanks again for having us.
CvCC Europe is the only major European conference we continue to support. We value the focus on solutions and action, versus posturing and back patting. Great range of speakers and delelgates, fantastic networking
The variety both of delegates and topics covered in presentations and panel discussions made for a more holistic perspective of addressing the challenges organizations face, which accurately represented the field of sustainability – a complex and intertwined network of stakeholders that is not always easy to navigate. It was also great to have sufficient time to have more in-depth discussions with participants, something that is difficult to achieve at larger conferences with a less intimate setting.
I am very glad I was part of the first European Companies vs Climate Change Conference in Brussels. Professionally organized 3-days conference, with a good mixture of frontrunning companies, consultants and NGOs. It was a great moment to hear about some good practices, about the challenges we are all facing, and to discuss potential solutions. I got inspired!
Companies vs Climate Change had an excellent speaker line-up featuring well-informed experts. The conference stayed true to the subject matter and offered real insight into possible decarbonization strategies and solutions. A great new addition to the European sustainability conference space.
What defined this event for me was chemistry, people were open to challenge, were curious and everyone just wanted to talk. Climate change is so politically charged, is great to be at an event shaped by empathy, listening and curiosity.
Well done on facilitating such a great event. The presentations were really interesting. I look forward to attending future events.
Good conference with nice and interesting companies commitments !
Great panelists from a variety of sectors that provided detailed insights into their sustainability commitments, and great networking! Now, let's all go the extra mile!
It was a fantastic event Jason. Many thanks for organizing. I think this is the start of something great! Thanks to all of the other attendees for your openness and willingness to collaborate. ‘See you next year!
Great conference with interesting presentations, an excellent atmosphere and general level of interaction.
Thanks for putting all those people together, Jason! The discussions were really interesting and it's very exciting to see how such diverse companies are engaged in tackling climate change.
I've learned a lot on how companies reduce, measure and manage their carbon food print. The science based targets and on a how the SDGs are implemented in sustainable business development. The small network breaks were perfect, excellent opportunity for individual discussions with speakers and participants
Quality content, very well organized and excellent conversations. Thanks Jason, well done for the first European CvCC. See you next year.
Thank you very much for the opportunity (to speak)– it was a great event, especially for it’s first year.
This was an excellent conference. The quality of the speakers, the venue and facilities was all really good. We were well looked after. I liked the mix of speakers/panels and networking opportunities. This was well designed. For the future I would like to propose these suggestions. I really enjoyed this conference; it was my first of this topic. I have come away inspired and informed. I hope there will be many more of these. Job well done!
I enjoyed the conference. • great location, easy to reach, well accomodated • high-level speakers, the ones I wanted to hear • interesting participants • good time-management and great hosting (Betsy rocks) Bottom line: a good event. We're thinking of supporting you next year.
First of all thank you for organising this event. As discussed personally shortly before leaving: -strong points of the event: Ø It brought together a broader range than only RE100 companies Ø Very strong and inspiring best practices. Ø I appreciated your involvement in bringing people together Ø The subjects were broad and not concentrated on 1 sustainability aspect: something interesting for everyone!
Climate change is affecting all of us, companies, governments and consumers alike. Collective action and awareness of how we can implement solutions is absolutely key to keeping the temperature increase below 1,5 degrees C. CvCC is a great platform for sharing knowledge on exactly this, and I was happy to engage with the audience on our journey towards ZERO carbon footprint as our breweries. My hope is that through initiatives such as CvCC, more companies will join Carlsberg Group in the fight to solve climate change.
The Companies Vs Climate Change conference was a huge success and I really appreciated the conference atmosphere. Great insights from companies, excellent panel discussions and fantastic networking opportunities – this was a great experience. Thanks to Jason Youner and the entire team for the outstanding conference in Brussels.
Wow - firstly huge congratulations on a very successful first event in Europe! I hope you are really pleased and proud with what you delivered and who you got in the room. I took away so much from the event, contacts, learnings and inspiration - what more could you ask for? Plus a fantastic trip in beautiful Brussels. Thank you very much. For the first event in Europe you had some fantastic speakers there. The information they provided was valuable and the opportunity to meet these people after has been really useful for me and the other people in the room.
