Event Details

The global low-carbon economy is officially here! 

The impacts of the COP 21 climate agreements are sweeping through business, finance, and investment communities as well as advancing proactive governmental policies. Engagement of the private sector is critical to achieving the climate goals established in Paris and to preserving business competitiveness in a low carbon economy.

Join NBIS and a panel of business and climate action leaders for first-hand perspectives on the spirit and momentum of that landmark achievement and the implications for Washington businesses.

Following the panel discussion, Karl Ostrom, Co-Executive Director of NBIS, and local business leaders will present new strategies and planning processes that companies are using to prepare for climate change risks and to leverage the opportunities evolving from this important global turning point!
