Policy Engagement in Uncertain Times

Thursday October 26, 11:30 am-12:30 pm

With seismic shifts occurring in American, European, and other global politics in varying ways, companies are trying to navigate how to engage with policy in order to lead on sustainability issues at a time of profound change. From public opposition to government policies, both in the media and in courts, to quieter efforts in influence and collaboration, there seems to be a multitude of options, but no clear roadmap. This timely discourse will provide guidance for participants to help them make decisions about where and how they can engage in the policy arena, both as individual companies and in collaboration with partners, to raise the voice of business on the crucial sustainability challenges of our time.
