May 22, 2018
9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

Corporate adoption of science-driven sustainability targets is gaining momentum, and the timing couldn't be better. The world's most pressing problems rely now, more than ever, on strong leadership from the corporate sector, and the resiliency of global business is more dependent than ever on solving these problems.

In this webinar, the panel -" composed of sustainability professionals from General Mills, Kering, McDonald's and Quantis - will help participants understand why going big on sustainability goals can be a smart business strategy as well as good stewardship. We'll discuss the intersection of today's major frameworks, such as science-driven goal setting, the Science-Based Targets initiative, planetary boundaries, Sustainable Development Goals and more, and provide concrete business cases from diverse organizations on how they're conducting this transition.

During this one-hour, interactive session the panel will provide concrete answers to:
