Opportunity in the midst of crisis

Presented from Sweden to create powerful, positive climate action on a global scale

Mundus International, in partnership with the American Chamber of Commerce in Sweden, present the second annual Bright Green Summit.

On 22 November 2022, the second annual Bright Green Summit will host a full live and online day of politicians, diplomats, experts and business taking us through the latest developments in the twin climate and energy crises.

The Bright Green Summit will highlight opportunities and serve as a platform to collaborate across industries, governments, academia, and society to provide the education, policies, products and services necessary to combat climate change on a global scale.

There are tremendous opportunities to lead by example from the investments that are made through trade and the exchange of knowledge and best practices in both private and public sectors, between Sweden and the U.S., and throughout the EU and the rest of the world.

Practical results will be achieved through the transfer of information and ideas, and via a partnership network excited to join forces in business and climate action.

Join us at Hilton Slussen Hotel in Stockholm or online




Representatives from corporations, trade and industry organizations and government representatives will gather live in Stockholm, and online from the U.S., across the EU and the rest of the world to discuss the outcomes of the COP27 summit, including:

Securing global net zero emissions across the entire social spectrum by mid-century to limit temperature increases to below 1.5 degrees

Adapting business to protect communities and natural habitats

Mobilizing finance that will lead to quick gains in positive climate change

Removing barriers between countries so they can work across borders in harmony together

The discussions that take place at the 2022 Bright Green Summit will be a model to follow in terms of the innovation, resolve and talent that is needed to create immediate, lasting and meaningful change on a global scale. This includes:

How the goals set at COP27 will impact Sweden, the U.S., EU, and the rest of the world

What effect agreements made will have on business and trade in the region and with the U.S.

Who will likely emerge as the winners or losers from different business and government viewpoints

How you can position yourself and your business
