For the first time in history, emerging markets are proving to be the new drivers of global growth. India, Brazil, China and other emerging countries are shaping the future of the world economy, one that will largely be based on providing food, water and energy for more than 8 billion people by 2030.
Representing more than 80% per cent of the world’s population and 50% per cent of the global economy, emerging markets hold increasing influence over global politics and the race for leadership in global green growth.
Major green investments are being made by emerging economies to ensure a greener, more sustainable future, creating new green jobs in services, manufacturing, agriculture, tourism and others sectors based on nature and biodiversity.
Under the theme ‘Emerging Market Leadership for Global Green Growth’, the 7th annual B4E Global Summit in Delhi will look at the role of emerging markets in driving the world’s transition to a global green economy, one of the greatest economic opportunities of our time.
Leaders from business, government and the NGO community will gather to explore inclusive green business models, innovation in finance and technology and propose industry commitments to action.
The B4E Global Summit 2013 in Delhi is co-hosted by CII and the Club of Rome.

B4E, Business for the Environment, is the leading international platform for dialogue and partnership solutions for the environment. The B4E summits bring together world leaders, CEOs, senior executives and industry experts to share ideas and commit to solutions, which address the most urgent environmental challenges facing the world today.
The acceleration and delivery of such transformative solutions will require a higher level of collaboration between business, government and NGOs than ever seen before. B4E aims to facilitate such collaboration through networking, informed discussion and the creation of innovative partnerships for change.
Issues addressed at the summits include energy, natural resource security, climate change, water management and biodiversity conservation, among others.
Since its inception in 2007, B4E has provided leaders from around the world a unique opportunity to shape game-changing solutions and influence the global agenda, leading toward a greener, more sustainable future.
Past B4E Summits were convened for the last five years in Singapore, Paris, Copenhagen, Seoul, Mexico City, Cancun, Jakarta, London, Rio, Berlin and Durban supported by the United Nations, WWF, Global Initiatives and host Governments.
