Our Founder, The Prince of Wales has delivered a virtual keynote speech to launch the start of Climate Week NYC. Run in coordination with the United Nations, Climate Week brings together international figures from the private, public and philanthropic sectors to discuss climate action.

Launched in Davos at the World Economic Forum in January, The Prince’s Sustainable Markets Initiative (SMI) aims to support communities, businesses, investors and consumers to take the urgent and necessary steps required to transition to more sustainable practices.

In June, His Royal Highness’s SMI and the World Economic Forum launched The Great Reset. The global initiative encourages us to ‘build back better’ through the rebuild, redesign, reinvigoration and rebalance of our world in the wake of Covid-19.

Marking the beginning of Climate Week, His Royal Highness also announced the launch of RE:TV, a new global platform for compelling films and articles by the SMI, showcasing solutions from around the world to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable future.

It will champion the most inspiring solutions for sustainability from around the world. With content curated by HRH, viewers will be able to explore five defined sub-channels: Re:Imagine; Re:Design; Re:Balance, Re:Invigorate, and Re:Invest.
