The inaugural FORTUNE Global Sustainability Forum was held September 4-6, 2019 on the shores of majestic Fuxian Lake in Yunnan, China. The theme was Green Grows Up: Forging A New Environmental Consensus.

This two-day summit focused on the convergence of energy, technology, and sustainability, convening senior leaders in business, government, NGOs, and academia from around the world. For Fortune 500 companies, municipalities, environmental activists, and citizens alike, the mandate has become clear: align for change or face the risk of being eliminated. As new technologies, new regulation, new thinking, and a new sense of collaboration have emerged, the need for consensus and change has become an essential part of boardroom fiduciary responsibility. The sessions in Yunnan provided a broad international perspective on the most pressing sustainability issues we are facing.

We believe that collectively there are solutions to these growing environmental problems, and working together in Yunnan we will explore cutting-edge thinking from around the world, examine new opportunities, and leave with a new understanding of the challenges business is facing, and opportunities for local action. We gathered at the 5-star Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake, on the northeast edge of one of China’s deepest freshwater lakes.
