Better Together: The Climate Pledge


Better Together: The Climate Pledge

Join us for a conversation about the power of companies (big and small) coming together to tackle the climate crisis, and hear why Global Optimism and Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge—a bold commitment to become net zero carbon by 2040—10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. 

In this one-hour webcast, GreenBiz Editorial Director Heather Clancy will moderate a discussion with Global Optimism’s founding partner Tom Rivett-Carnac, Amazon’s Head of Worldwide Sustainability Kara Hurst, and Verizon's Vice President of Global Supply Chain Operations & Chief Sustainability Officer to dive deep on why the time to take action is now.

Among the topics:

The realities of our planet, and where climate change stands
How coming together is better, and what companies can expect by taking The Climate Pledge
How companies are rethinking their approach to business, and how this collective effort will accelerate progress
Investing in decarbonizing technologies, and putting them into practice 
Embracing nature based solutions as part of the carbon reduction equation, but not as the primary way

Moderator:

Heather Clancy, Editorial Director, GreenBiz Group

Speakers: 

James Gowen, Vice President of Global Supply Chain Operations & Chief Sustainability Officer, Verizon
Tom Rivett, Founding Partner, Global Optimism
Kara Hurst, Head of Worldwide Sustainability, Amazon
