Event Details

Aron Cramer, President and CEO, Business for Social Responsibility

Andrea Thomas, Senior Vice President of Sustainability, Walmart

 

Walmart, McDonald's and other large companies are pushing their suppliers to reduce packaging, waste and energy use to save companies money and reduce carbon pollution. The goals of zero waste and 100 percent renewable energy are big and audacious. Are they achievable?

Companies can have big impact creating markets for solar panels on their roofs, energy efficient equipment and cleaner products that aim for a triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. It’s been eight years since Walmart’s former CEO Lee Scott made its sustainability commitment; what has gone well, and what hasn’t? What are other corporations doing to be sustainability leaders? What holds companies accountable for their green claims?

Join a conversation about the promise and perils of a move toward so-called sustainable capitalism with Walmart’s SVP Andrea Thomas and Aron Cramer, CEO of Business for Social Responsibility, a consulting firm that works with AT&T, Coca-Cola, Starbucks and other large companies on a range of environmental and social issues.
