On August 20th, GPF hosted a webinar on the role of corporations in curbing climate change. This was moderated by founder of the Altruist League, Milos Maricic, with guests John Goldstein, head of sustainable finance at Goldman Sachs, and Annie Agle, director of brand and impact at Cotopaxi.
Corporations produce just about everything we buy, use and throw away, and therefore have an outsized influence on climate change. As climate change and its impacts become more severe, meaningful corporate action becomes necessary. With the disruption to the global economy caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, what can corporations learn from the current moment to reduce their climate footprints and how are CSR strategies shifting? In this webinar, we’ll hear from leaders in corporate sustainability on the role of corporations in taking on climate change and their visions for the future.
