Climate Change & Sustainability – Transforming Business for a Sustainable Future

November 15, 2022 @ 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

During the World Trade Center Institute’s (WTCI) 2022 AGILE Innovation Series, experts from the Mid-Atlantic will dive into these issues and discuss the solutions they are using to navigate our ever-changing world.  Each session in the four-part series features a 90-minute presentation and interactive conversation, followed by a networking reception. All sessions are held in Baltimore, Maryland, and will be available to stream online.

The impacts of human-caused global warming are worsening and accelerating. Climate change is a global problem requiring collective action and innovation, with many interconnected stakeholders and complex, competing interests. How can the private sector lead the decarbonization of the global economy? Sustainable business practices have historically come at a cost – challenging market competitiveness and profitability. As new science and data emerge on rapidly accelerating climate threats, future competitiveness will be dictated by business leaders who rapidly pivot to balance economic and environmental goals. Emerging technologies across all industries are making it possible for businesses to model for sustainability while maintaining, if not growing, market positioning. The private sector has a unique obligation, and opportunity, to rebuild the economy for a sustainable future.

Location: Virtual and in-person at the National Aquarium in Baltimore
