Corporate leaders need to be objectively informed about the implications of climate change.
There are risks associated with climate change. The risks are regulatory and financial. The risks can also include access to capital, customer retention, corporate reputation, and insurability.
It is time that Executives had the resources they need to help them take advantage of the business opportunities in the transition to a lower-carbon economy.
Please join 360 Energy at a breakfast briefing with Bob Willard to explore these topics. The event will include a panel of executives from the Burlington Chamber of Commerce, the City of Burlington, and Samuel, Son and Co.
