CAMPAIGN: BSR Conference 2014: Transparency and Transformation

CONTENT: Newsletter

The BSR Conference 2014 is only two weeks away, and we are looking forward to bringing you one of our most exciting events yet. For three days in New York, we willl explore the disruptive nature of radical transparency on sustainability, and how sustainable business leaders—both individuals and companies—are transforming their models and approaches to build a just and sustainable world.

We are delighted to announce the addition of three such leaders to our speaker roster: 

  • Christina Peters, IBM’s Chief Privacy Officer, who is working on the cutting edge of Big Data and consumer privacy issues.
  • Robert Hammond, Co-Founder of Friends of the Highline, who reimagined an abandoned railway line as an elevated urban park.
  • Actor Jeffrey Wright, who is fighting to change the narrative around the Ebola outbreak to focus on successes in West Africa rather than fear through his #CrushEbolaNow campaign.

They will join an inspiring lineup of plenary speakers and dozens of presenters on the agenda.

Please join us November 4-6 to explore how transformative technologies, business models, and financial valuations can produce rapid progress toward sustainable prosperity for all. We hope to see you there.

Perspectives on “Unburnable Carbon” and Divestment from Fossil Fuels

Investors on both sides of the Atlantic have been in a heated debate about divesting from fossil fuels since the Carbon Tracker Initiative released its report stating that 60 to 80 percent of fossil fuel company reserves are “unburnable” if we are to limit global warming to 2˚C. Join us in this one-hour conversation to unpack the financial, tactical, and moral arguments on both sides of the divestment debate. Learn more
