Summary

The Motley Fool covers the United Nations Investor Summit on Climate Risk and Energy Solutions, convened by Ceres, which spotlighted innovative solutions by companies.  For example, PepsiCo teamed up with NGO Forum for the Future in 2009 to take a long-term view of assessing environmental and social risks and opportunities out to 2030.
