About us

Budapest Climate Summit is a niche event focusing on the green transition of the CEE region’s economy.

The summit brings together policymakers, industry experts, corporate leaders, technology pioneers and next-generation sustainable leaders to share their perspectives on how to enable businesses and civil society to deliver actions necessary to achieve our common climate objectives.

The first Budapest Climate Summit took place in 2020, and since then it became an important yearly meeting point for climate and sustainability stakeholders. Distinguished speakers are coming from all around the world to discuss the green transformation of the economy in light of the 2050 climate targets. Encouraged by the huge success of the previous events the Budapest Climate Summit will be organised this year as well, on 7 December in Hotel Marriott Budapest.
