April 9th, 2-3pm
Matt Coleman (Director, Strategic Partnerships at Nephila Climate) and Alice Hill (Senior Fellow for Energy and Environment, Council on Foreign Relations) and Mike Lenox (Professor, Senior Associate Dean and Chief Strategy Officer, Darden School of Business) discuss areas of climate risk and opportunities for private sector mitigation and adaptation. Opening remarks by ERI Director McGlathery. Meeting emissions reductions targets will require major transitions across the global economy. A range of businesses, including producers of fossil fuels, automobile manufacturers, energy producers, and many others are already adjusting their business strategies to adapt. Entirely new economic sectors will need to be built to promote, among other activities, removal of carbon from the atmosphere and climate resilience.
