Join us for the release of the 12th annual edition of State of Green Business, GreenBiz Group’s award-winning annual report.
Each year, the report looks at 10 key trends and dozens of metrics assessing how, and how much, companies are moving the needle on the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. The report is produced in partnership with Trucost, part of S&P Global, a world leader in helping companies, investors, governments, academics and thought leaders understand the economic consequences of natural capital dependency.
In this one-hour webcast, coinciding with the report’s release, GreenBiz Group chairman and executive editor Joel Makower, Trucost CEO Richard Mattison and Libby Bernick, Global Head of Corporate Business for Trucost. Together, they will provide insights into key trends and metrics in sustainable business, including some new metrics introduced in this year’s report on how companies are managing their climate and natural capital risks.
Among the topics:
- The climate’s growing problem of “super pollutants”
- How climate-risk disclosure is taking investors by storm
- Why green loans are attracting lower interest rates
- The new focus on soil as a climate solution
- Why reuse is making a comeback
- How sustainability jobs are becoming embedded in companies
