2022 has been a landmark year for sustainability—frameworks and regulations gained traction with companies and governments, landmark bills passed across the U.S. and Europe to accelerate the shift in renewable energy and infrastructure, we learned that the number of degrees the planet is expected to warm isn’t as dire (but it’s definitely getting hotter), and so much more.
Sustain.Life chief sustainability officer, Alyssa Rade, and other influential thought leaders (to be announced) in the sustainability and ESG space will discuss the most notable trends, events, advancements, and setbacks in climate change and regulations.
The panel will also look ahead to 2023, and what the new year could bring in actionable solutions and advancements that will ensure we can preserve the planet for a better tomorrow.
