We are less than two weeks away from Climate Day 2018 at Expo West on March 7 - the anniversary of the Climate Collaborative's launch! It represents a huge moment for us to come together as an industry, look back at what we've accomplished so far, and set out to be even more ambitious as we look toward what we can do together to promote climate action this year.

We have a truly fabulous line-up at Climate Day, with former EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy headlining, discussions featuring renowned climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe and Ben & Jerry's CEO Jostein Solheim, remarks from General Mills' Carla Vernon, and of course the inaugural National Co+op Grocers Climate Collaborative awards ceremony! Don't forget to RSVP, and make sure to arrive early so you can join us for the full day.

We hope to see you all there!
