Keynote: Championing Sustainability Into Organizations at Every Stage

Together, business and sustainability have the power to drive and inspire business purpose and meaningful sustainability impacts. Targets and improvements on energy, waste and water are common; while these are necessary fundamentals, will they solve our global climate crisis?

This lens will inspire and benefit profitable growth, attract and retain the best employees, and ensure license to operate across markets and industries.

 

This session highlights different companies' quests toward deeper purpose and sustainability integration — internally and externally — by exploring hurdles overcome, actions taken, and movement from values to impact. Attendees will come away with insights about incremental and transformational opportunities to leverage their efforts as EHS&S professionals in shifting their own organization's sustainability paradigm.

Keynote: Global Citizenship — Change Your Mind, Change Your World

National Geographic Explorer Chris Bashinelli, using real-life visual examples from the slums of Haiti to the fields of Uganda to the Mongolian Steppe, will illustrate how the key to productivity, meaning and connection lies in transforming not our external conditions, but our internal ones.

 

Hear Chris explain how Global Citizenship, using our everyday work and lives as a vehicle to grow inwardly, helps us become the best version of ourselves. When we embody the qualities of a Global Citizen — presence, empathy and inspiration — then we can truly inspire those around us.

 

With the mindset of the Global Citizen, every challenge in our work and lives — from a disagreement with a coworker to the loss of someone we love — becomes fuel for us to grow inwardly and reach our potential. It begins with realizing we already have everything we need to be happy right now. You'll leave this session with a better understanding of the Global Citizen concept and how it can help you.
