Act To Impact: Keeping Our Promises To The Planet

From Science Insider.

0The scientific consensus on climate change is almost unanimous, and our planet is already experiencing its effects. Beyond the risks for businesses across industries — including labor shortages, supply chain disruption, and higher production costs — climate change poses an existential threat to humanity. At the same time, more and more business stakeholders, employees, and executives are demanding action. 

We can no longer ignore the issue. 

This event features live conversations between Insider senior editors and C-suite executives, corporate leaders, climate activists, experts and artists about how we can mitigate and adapt to climate change today to avoid catastrophe in the near future.
