COP 21: The Impacts, Opportunities, and Risks for Businesses

April 29, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Late last year, nearly 200 countries signed onto a historic climate agreement at COP21 in Paris. What might the impacts of this unprecedented climate agreement be on Minnesota companies? What is the role of the business community in meeting our national and international climate goals?

We’ll discuss why, and how, businesses are using the momentum created by COP21 as a catalyst to assess climate-related risks and opportunities, drive science-based goal setting, and develop credible carbon reporting programs. Join us to engage in informal networking, small group discussion, and to understand how businesses are thinking about their carbon reduction and reporting programs.

Cost is $75 for Environmental Initiative members and 
$125 for non-members. Registration will remain open until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 22, or as space allows. Register early; space is limited. Need-based scholarships are available upon request.
