In 2015, Lubber helped catalyze the necessary business support to get the historic Paris Agreement across the finish line.
United Nations Environment Programme Executive Director Inger Andersen calls Lubber “a lifetime visionary…who sees the complex intersections between humanity and the world around them not as a challenge but as an opportunity. We are proud to celebrate Mindy Lubber as a 2020 Champion of the Earth, she demonstrates that with careful planning and collaboration, there needs not be a confrontation between environmental sustainability and economic growth.”
