Event Description

Where do business and policy intersect in the fight against climate change? Join sustainability leaders for a day of peer-to-peer sharing of actions and realities in mitigating climate change and adapting for a better future for our environment and public health. Business and non-profit leaders, researchers, sustainability professionals, policy experts, students, and anyone interested in the intersection of public and private efforts to address climate change are invited. Listen and engage with two panels: one with experts from the policy, advocacy, and legal fields and another with Minnesota industry leaders from healthcare, consumer products, and commercial real estate. Panelists will showcase their specific impact and achievements in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Minnesota, define the obstacles inherent to their company and industry, and lay out their goals for future, scalable climate action. Following the panel discussions, stay to reflect on perspectives and strategies and connect with fellow attendees and speakers.
