The Next Move: Staying the Course on Climate

In 2019, it seemed that momentum was increasing for changing the course on climate. Inspired by Greta Thunberg, students around the world were striking to prompt action to address what they saw as a looming catastrophe. Business and government leaders were making high profile and meaningful commitments to lower greenhouse gases. The news cycle included coverage of climate change and its devastating impacts.

Since then, our collective consciousness has shifted abruptly as we face the devastating health and economic costs of COVID–19 and the pernicious consequences of deeply-rooted racial injustice. Yet climate change continues unabated, even as concern for climate has fallen from the minds of most Americans.

Join us for a webinar with James Gowan, Chief Sustainability Officer & Vice President, Global Supply Chain at Verizon; Michael Kobori, Chief Sustainability Officer at Starbucks; and Sandra Taylor, Founder of Sustainable Business International; for a discussion moderated by Joel Makower, Chairman & Executive Editor of GreenBiz Group Inc. We’ll explore how business leaders are addressing climate change, while wrestling with other urgent crises.
