Description

Amid the tragedies of the coronavirus pandemic, a radical shift from “business-as-usual” has had significant impact on the planet. Just a few months of lower industrial activity and travel reduced air pollution in parts of China, for instance. But if reducing climate impacts at scale occurs only during global pandemics, the change is hardly sustainable. Worse yet, humanitarian crises like the Covid-19 outbreak stand to divert attention from the urgent and interrelated effects of climate change. Stakeholders, from investors and companies to national and local governments, must act or face a reckoning. • How can collective leadership accelerate climate action and policy that safeguards an inclusive future? • What is the key ask to the G7, during and post-Covid, to ensure climate action for a more resilient world? Moderator: Stephenie Foster, Partner at Smash Strategies Speakers: • Virginie Helias, Chief Sustainability Officer, Procter & Gamble • Christine McGrath, Vice President and Chief of Global Impact, Sustainability, and Well-being, Mondelēz International • Nathalie Molina Niño, CEO of O³, Investor, Entrepreneur, Author of Leapfrog, The New Revolution for Women Entrepreneurs
