Expo West is next week, and we can't wait to see many of you at Climate Day. Check out the full program here and below. We have an incredible day of programming planned! Don't forget to join us for a hearty breakfast and hot beverages starting at 7:30 am. While you are getting ready for the day, our first session will be a coffee and climate fireside chat. From there, we have four morning sessions covering the Farm Bill, investing in climate, The Almond Project (a very innovative cross-brand collaboration), and eliminating deforestation in your supply chain.
The afternoon kicks off with a keynote from author Kim Stanley Robinson. If you are not familiar with his work, he is considered to be one of the top science fiction authors of our time. We are also thrilled to welcome Leah Thomas and Bill McKibben as keynote presenters. Our closing session includes Jason Buechel (CEO, Whole Foods), Jordan Rubin (CEO, Ancient Nutrition), Brian Rudolph (CEO, Banza), and Kristy Lewis (Founder & Chief Visionary Officer, QUINN). Each session is actionable, inspiring, and oriented towards bringing you the information you need to make strategic decisions to accelerate your climate action.
We look forward to seeing you there!
