Joel Makower – Verge

3 Programs By This Presenter

In an era of climate change, economic uncertainty and global turmoil, business as usual is giving way to bold, audacious thinking: How can America’s private sector realign its interests in a way that builds resilience and well-being while strengthening its economy and environment? It’s a trillion-dollar business opportunity that affects every sector, and the inspiring subject of my book (published by St. Martin’s PRess in 2016), about a new “grand strategy” for America, born at the Pentagon, that embeds sustainability as a strategic national imperative.

  • The Pentagon-inspired vision to make sustainability a national strategic imperative
  • Three massive pools of demand waiting to be tapped by the private sector
  • Why Washington, D.C. isn’t the key leader in our recovery (but local governments and CEOs are)
  • How this revolution is already taking shape across America
  • The specter of climate change is already upon us, roiling markets, supply chains and business continuity, and the world’s largest investors are demanding accountability and transparency. All of which represents an opportunity for companies to become more resilient and adaptive amid an uncertain future, and to align their products and services in a climate-constrained world. There will be winners and losers in every sector. Joel Makower, a veteran of 30 years in the worlds of business, sustainability and clean technology, lays out the strategies and technologies that will help companies navigate this dynamic environment — and how to be ready to survive and thrive in a climate-constrained world.

  • How climate change is creating new business opportunities
  • How Wall Street is viewing companies’ climate-readiness
  • What every business leader needs to understand about the new climate reality
  • Nearly every company is assessing itself through the lens of sustainability. For a handful of leadership companies, it involves asking the question: “How do we compete in a world in which energy, water, materials, and toxicity are constraints to growth?” Today, being green is not just about “doing less bad” or “greening the bottom line.” It’s about reducing risk — supply chain, reputation, financial and more. It’s about growing the top line through innovation, new markets, increased productivity, and increased ability to attract and retain talent. I tell how leaders align sustainability with business value.

  • What’s driving sustainability to the top inside the world’s biggest companies
  • Strategies companies use to harness sustainability to create business value
  • “How good is good enough?” when it comes to sustainability performance
  • The challenges of communicating for environmental leaders
  • How a new breed of green innovators is transforming markets
  • Topics and Expertise
