Climate Action Summit

21 – 22 June 2023

​Collaborating to accelerate coporate climate action


Speakers, Panelists & Host
Travel & Accommodation



 In 2021, we organised the Climate Action Summit for the first time – and it was a success. More than 1,000 participants and speakers from academia and various sectors of the economy came together in Munich and remotely to learn and be inspired, with the goal of taking climate action to the next level.    

For ClimatePartner, the Summit is about bringing the climate action community together. We don't aim to make money with the Summit. Nevertheless, we are dependent on sponsors if we want to put on a high-quality event with top speakers. Unfortunately, companies are currently very reluctant to offer sponsorship. In times of austerity measures, other organisers are also feeling this pressure at the moment. 

Therefore, it is with heavy hearts that we have to cancel the Climate Action Summit 2023.

We will cancel your registration for the event automatically and reimburse the ticket price to your account within the next four weeks. You will receive a separate email with a cancellation invoice for accounting purposes.  

We very much hope that the Summit will return in 2024. Climate action is and remains more important than ever. Our full energy is therefore now directed towards advancing climate action for companies – we will inform you about this in the coming weeks with exciting news. In the meantime, please check out our Online Academies and Deep Dive Sessions to gain insights on how to take ambitious climate action.
