New York City, New York Jul 20, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – Techonomy & Worth, two media brands owned by New York-based Clarim Media today announced the in-person Health + Wealth of Our Planet conference. The event will be on September 20th at the new City Winery NYC, from 8:30 am-6:00 pm. It takes place amidst one of New York’s most important periods – the UN General Assembly and Climate Week.
Business is increasingly at the center of the battle against global warming, and a company that isn’t sustainable will likely encounter growing pushback as time goes on. So what challenges do companies face as they make this historic turn?
Confirmed speakers to help tackle these complex questions include Seth Godin, author of the just-published The Carbon Almanac: It’s Not Too Late, a compendium of facts and resources for climate action; Julia Jackson, founder of Grounded, which works to advance earth-based climate solutions, focusing especially on agriculture; U.S. Steel Chief Strategy and Sustainability Officer Richard Fruehauf; gender inclusion technologist Katica Roy of Pipeline Equity; Managing Director of Corporate Partnerships at Environmental Defense Fund Elizabeth Sturcken; California Baby CEO Jessica Iclisoy; and co-President of the Club of Rome Sandrine Dixson-Decleve.
Among our themes for this important event: What is the state of corporate carbon accounting? What is the role of Wall Street? Are ESG and sustainability-oriented investing pushing hard enough? What does a chief sustainability officer-a title more and more companies are creating-really do? How much of today’s corporate rhetoric is really just greenwashing? What are the benefits that will come to companies that take genuine measurable steps towards action?
It will also look at specific industries, like fashion, now taking a major turn towards sustainability. What about electric vehicles – how much difference can they make? There is also a sustainable food and agriculture revolution. Where does that stand, and are consumers putting on sufficient pressure?
This important event is made possible from the support of sponsors, including U.S. Steel, The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), and Marchon Eyewear.
