About the World Green Summit: The World Green Summit (WGS) is a new annual high-level forum committed to progressing sustainable development and the green economy, by engaging business, finance, government and other leaders to find solutions for industries, cities, regions and nations. Endorsed by the Government of Rio de Janeiro, the inaugural WGS provides a media, marketing and networking platform during the official high-level portion of the Rio+20 conference, to enable the world’s leading CEOs, financiers, celebrities, and dignitaries to initiate, communicate and build solutions for a sustainable future. The summit is supported by Institutional Partners (Act NOW, Carbon Disclosure Project, CEBDS, ICLEI, United Nations Foundation, Sustainable Energy For All, UNICA), Global Media Partners (TIME, FT, Thomson Reuters), Global TV Partner (CNBC), EU Media Partner (European Voice) and is by invitation-only for 500 business and government leaders.
