Great Things Happen When We Work Together

The Power of Collaboration

When like-minded organizations join forces with similar goals and desires – great results happen. This is precisely how The Nest Summit was born. Created to advance sustainability, The Nest was founded in 2019 by supporting organizations The Javits Center, NYC & Company, and the Climate Group. The inaugural event attracted many organizations eager to share their important research and proved to be a successful networking center during Climate Week NYC.

The Nest Summit is now a proud event partner of Climate Week NYC and is honored to contribute to the mission of expanding climate action here in the U.S. In 2020, the global pandemic actually expedited that. The Nest Summit’s virtual event featured over 100 climate thought-leaders and was broadcast from the Javits Center in collaboration with Climate Week NYC.  Over a million viewers interested in making a difference watched the program! In 2021, we aim to expand our reach further all while reconnecting and reviving the climate community in the great city of New York.

We are really excited to partner with The Nest Summit as an official partner of Climate Week NYC. As the world grapples with a tapestry of challenges, all of which threaten the most vulnerable members of society the hardest, there has never been a more important time to engage with each other so that we can build a better future. Following on from the success of 2019, the Javits Center, with its commitment to innovation, sustainability, and climate action, is the ideal location to host such a central part of the biggest Climate Week on earth, and indeed the biggest climate summit to take place globally in 2020. This twelfth annual Climate Week NYC, running in collaboration with the United Nations General Assembly, will be the most critical, inclusive, and globally focused week in our history. The Nest is a vital part of our mission to inspire meaningful change both in New York and around the world.

Adam Lake | Head of Climate Week, The Climate Group

As an iconic venue with the largest green roof in New York State, we are honored to host The Nest Summit during Climate Week NYC. The innovative environmental measures we have implemented at the Javits Center has shown the meaningful impact of sustainability on our entire community, an impact on those with wings and on those without. As we begin construction on the largest rooftop solar array in New York City, this is the perfect setting to champion the importance of climate action and demonstrate how buildings and corporations can build a better world for all of us.

Alan Steel | President & CEO, The Javits Convention Center

Even in the grips of this devastating pandemic, climate change is our most pressing existential threat. This is not a problem for the next generation to solve. If we do not take responsible climate action now, our existence will continue to be severely compromised and the next generation will be robbed of the opportunity to live in a sustainably balanced environment. Through The Nest Summit, we are thrilled to convene the nation’s top thought-leaders from business, government, and research to show how today’s successful climate programs, policies, and initiatives will deliver a sustainable future, tomorrow.

Britton Jones | Founder & CEO, NXT Events Media Group

As a leader in the move to create a greener future, New York City is proud to host Climate Week NYC and The Nest Summit. NYC & Company was one of the founding members of The Nest in 2019 and we are pleased to support its continued growth. At a critical time for accelerating climate action, The Nest Summit is providing sustainability leaders in business, government and research an outstanding opportunity to advance their efforts in addressing the existential threats of climate change. We are honored to be a part of this critical mission.
