Better Together: The Climate Pledge

Join us for a conversation about the power of companies (big and small) coming together to tackle the climate crisis, and hear why Global Optimism and Amazon co-founded The Climate Pledge—a bold commitment to become net zero carbon by 2040—10 years ahead of the Paris Agreement. 

In this one-hour webcast, GreenBiz Editorial Director Heather Clancy will moderate a discussion with Global Optimism’s founding partner Tom Rivett-Carnac, Amazon’s Head of Worldwide Sustainability Kara Hurst, and Verizon's Vice President of Global Supply Chain Operations & Chief Sustainability Officer to dive deep on why the time to take action is now.

Among the topics:

  • The realities of our planet, and where climate change stands
  • How coming together is better, and what companies can expect by taking The Climate Pledge
  • How companies are rethinking their approach to business, and how this collective effort will accelerate progress
  • Investing in decarbonizing technologies, and putting them into practice 
  • Embracing nature based solutions as part of the carbon reduction equation, but not as the primary way
