Global Sustainability and the Law
Please join Ballard Spahr Environment and Natural Resources Group attorneys, Harry Weiss and Lorene Boudreau, as they moderate a discussion with Melanie George Smith, Esq., Founder and CEO of Sustainable World Strategies, LLC, and Alan Horowitz, Managing Director, Trusted Companies LLC and former EHS and Sustainability Lead for AstraZeneca and Microsoft.
Global Sustainability can be viewed as a business strategy that drives innovation and profit. Do you understand what it is? Chances are good that your clients do - 90% of Fortune 500 companies are already committed to Global Sustainability, and they are pushing down on their supply chain to become sustainable. Your kids do - Millennials and Generation Z want to work for organizations that represent their values and that are making a positive impact on the world. And by 2025, 75% of the workforce will be Millennials or younger. What does that mean for your law practice, and how can you use Global Sustainability strategies to enhance your company?
Some highlights of the program will be...
- Overview of Global Sustainability and the Law
- What is Global Sustainability?
- Why should a business - your clients - care?
- Legal opportunities for deeper involvement
