The Business of Climate Change Conference 2007
|Event Date/Time: Oct 29, 2007||End Date/Time: Oct 30, 2007|
Last year’s conference foreshadowed many of the issues around climate change that North American businesses and governments are grappling with today. Former US Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill, GE Canada President Elyse Allan, and Ceres President Mindy Lubber shared their insights into carbon liability, governance, consumer demand, regulatory market based solutions including trading, and opportunities in a carbon constrained world.
Adaptability to climate change is on its way to becoming a significant factor in the profitability of business. The 2007 conference will focus on ‘from theory to practice’ as we gather leaders from across North America who have been ahead of the curve and are well on the road to integrating climate change into their strategic business plans and operations.
Here’s what you’ll learn at the 2007 conference:
What’s in the public policy pipeline in Canada, the U.S., provinces, and internationally.
Are customers driving change in the B2B and retail marketplace?
What is your climate risk exposure?
What companies can expect in terms of shareholder activism on climate change.
Carbon finance, how to profit and what we have learned from existing international markets.
Reducing your carbon footprint: how leading companies have done it.
Large industrial emitters, regulatory impacts and the bottom line.
