Experts from Accenture, Ecofys and Nasdaq to Discuss the Business Opportunities Behind Tackling Climate Change during an Enablon and GreenBiz Webinar
Event to be held Dec. 15, 2015 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. CST with replay available from website
The United Nations conference on climate change, known as COP21, is prompting new soul-searching among global business leaders. The big question for self-reflection is not only to know if the business community is contributing enough to tackling climate change, but also: how is it possible to transform an apparent constraint into a source of competitive advantage and a business opportunity?
Forward-thinking business leaders are also using COP21-inspired goals to boost efficiency, enhance stakeholder engagement, improve reputation and drive financial benefits. From reaping the benefits of sustainability to rethinking all that is related to product development or supply chain management, sustainability can benefit business strategies in multiple ways.
During this webinar, Sarah Hendel-Blackford, Senior consultant at Ecofys will outline how climate change impacts are affecting business today and how organizations can build climate resiliency. Evan Harvey, Director of Corporate Responsibility at NASDAQ will focus on the lessons learned through working with companies and other stock exchanges worldwide to foster sustainability initiatives. Mike Nicholus, Director of Global Environment Operations at Accenture, will share how Accenture has realized business performance outcomes as a direct result of looking at client delivery activities through the climate change lens.
Among the questions this webcast will address:
- How climate change is impacting businesses
- How to drive positive change within your organization with the right climate change mitigation strategies and tools
- Applicable insights from forward-thinking industry leaders who have not waited for COP21 to keep thriving while effectively tackling the challenges of global warming
