Business Leadership on Sustainability
in a Brave New World
2016 was officially the warmest year on record, with temperatures almost 2 degrees Fahrenheit higher than the pre-industrial level. The year also brought change to Washington, with many uncertain or fearful of what is to come.
California has vowed to continue to lead on climate and environmental issues. And business has, in many ways, taken responsibility for advancing the sustainability agenda over the last decade. For example, recent surveys show 85% of executives believe climate change is real and more than 90% of CEOs believe that sustainability is important to a company’s profits.
What are companies doing to address sustainability? And given the uncertain and uneven policy and regulatory environment, what are their plans going forward?
Join us on May 25 at the Oracle Conference Center for the 5th annual Silicon Valley Energy and Sustainability Summit (#ESS17) to explore how to employ the latest innovative technologies and practices to create lasting value and learn what leading businesses are doing to address the sustainability imperative.
We are excited to reveal our agenda!
