Advancing sustainable growth in the United States and China

About the CEO Council for Sustainable Urbanization

The U.S.-China CEO Council for Sustainable Urbanization, led by the Paulson Institute, in partnership with the China Center for International Economic Exchanges (CCIEE), harnesses the collective influence of leading American and Chinese CEOs and their companies to advance green business practices and sustainable urbanization in China. Launched in November 2014, Council companies are committed to integrating sustainability into their business plans and setting best practices through their actions.

In March 2018, the Council launched the Race to Zero campaign, which encourages companies to drive further toward zero-carbon, zero-waste business practices by making specific commitments to reduce emissions and waste. Learn more about Race to Zero.
