Stepping to the Plate on Climate Change: Business Leadership on Carbon Reduction
As the global economy becomes increasingly more unpredictable and complex, assessing and managing risk for both business and government becomes paramount. A contributing factor in that unpredictability is the existing and ongoing effect of climate change. National Clean Energy Summit 7.0: Partnership &Progress’ “Business Leadership on Carbon Reduction” panel will take a prospective look at how businesses assess the risks of climate change and why it is necessary to begin planning today.
The panel’s moderator, Counselor to President Obama John Podesta, will encourage a discussion about business models, infrastructure, the risks posed by climate change and how it will stretch businesses’ financial resources in unexpected ways. The panel will also consider how public-private partnerships in clean energy are growing the economy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition to Mr. Podesta, the panel will include top-level business and government leaders including former Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Risky Business Committee Member Henry Cisneros, former Governor of Utah Jon Huntsman, President and CEO of Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) Elizabeth Littlefield, as well as Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International James J. Murren.
You can listen to these leaders discuss how business and government are tackling the risks of climate change in person by registering for the “National Clean Energy Summit 7.0: Partnership & Progress” happening on September 4 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. We hope you’ll join us!
