With so many extraordinary women engaged in the battle against climate change, the biggest task in compiling Reuters Impact’s list of trailblazing women for International Women’s Day was whittling down our long list to only 25. We reluctantly decided not to include the likes of Christiana Figueres, Greta Thunberg, and U.N. Environment Programme chief Inger Andersen, who already have a high global profile for their work, in order to shine the light on women whose contributions may have flown under the radar.

In July 2023 we hosted a webinar on Data and Climate Risk Management, co-hosted by Deloitte Africa and Arctic Basecamp. Watch it back and learn how data can help us understand and mitigate the effects of climate change and Arctic disruption on the world’s economy and society. Develop a greater understanding and how to better assess widely unconsidered risks to enable more informed decision making and forward planning.
Head to the webinar and hear from experts in the risk and sustainability field.
Arctic Basecamp pitched at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos for the seventh time in January 2023.
This film shows the highlights of the week and why we raise awareness of Arctic change to encourage bold climate action from global leaders.
Reuters IMPACT & Arctic Basecamp launch ‘Arctic Warning’
Amid the noise of a frantic news agenda, Arctic Warning aims to keep the climate story front and centre and address the disconnect between boardroom conversations and the concerns, demands and hopes of younger generations. Hosted by Reuters Editor-at-Large Axel Threlfall and Professor Gail Whiteman, Founder of Arctic Basecamp, the series engages leaders from business and politics, activists and changemakers, presenting an exciting new approach to the climate challenge.

We wanted to put fresh, natural, unadulterated climate facts right under the noses of world leaders, COP26 delegates, climate deniers and reporters in Glasgow. This high profile campaign brought Arctic glacial meltwater right into the heart of COP 26.
These bottles were available at our Arctic Basecamp tent at COP 26 and make regular appearances at Davos and other events. Each limited edition bottle contains messages of risk and the advice not to waste these precious glaciers.
We worked with a Greenlandic enterprise to collect Greenland glacial meltwater at source and worked with a Scottish bottling partner to bottle it into a ‘a single serving of alarming climate facts’. A Bottled Warning.
