AmCham Special Event
As the United States re-establishes its global leadership in confronting climate change under President Biden, remarkable opportunities are emerging for businesses around the globe to make meaningful contributions towards achieving net-zero emissions before 2050 through their own operations, products, and partnerships. To reach this target, a rapid transformation in infrastructure will be required across all sectors of the economy. What is less widely appreciated is that many of the required actions can improve the health of our most vulnerable. Collin O’Mara, President and CEO of the (U.S.) National Wildlife Federation will speak with the American Chamber of Commerce about how companies can benefit and propel solutions in clean energy, advanced transportation, low-carbon manufacturing, natural climate solutions, and “net-zero” education.
