Conscious Business: How Leaders Are Embedding Sustainability Principles in Their Organizations

Businesses are taking the lead on climate change initiatives. This panel gathers leaders at organizations that go beyond reducing their ecological footprint to demonstrating sustainability and generating a greater value with fewer resources and emissions. These leading firms are addressing both environmental impacts and the transformation of organizational culture. They are showing how to design and run a conscious business, a self-aware and purpose-driven organization dedicated to serving society and the environment. Audiences will come away with best practices for implementing impactful initiatives in their own organizations.
