With the theme “Collaborate, Innovate, Act – Delivering the Green Economy”, the summit will explore transformative business models, smart cities and innovative financial solutions, with proposals for a better, more sustainable future. The outcome of the B4E Summit discussions will be shared with key decision makers at the 2012 Earth Summit in Rio.
