Businesses For A Sustainable Economy: Shifting Markets & Policy

Sunday, June 8th, 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM
Room 348

The move toward a more sustainable economy is being driven in part by businesses; large and small. While the voluntary efforts of these companies are essential, we also need public policies (e.g. legislation and regulations) to move us forward. Such policies provide clear market signals to companies about the importance of, among other things, reducing their carbon footprint, green buildings, creating better workplaces, safer chemicals and products and creating a sustainable food system . This session explores the important role that business can play in creating a just, vibrant and sustainable economy by championing market shifts and policies.
