We are honored to announce our December 12th program at Iron & Vine Restaurant
"The Planet, Corporate Responsibility, Regeneration and Us – What Lies Ahead?”
Lynette Preston Cameron
award-winning technology executive and sustainability strategist
Lynelle Cameron’s sponsor is Gabriel Campbell, member of the WACSC Program Committee
With the current collision of climate change, pandemics and wars, we are experiencing a true multi-crisis. Sustainability – balancing people, planet and profit -- is the key, and requires unprecedented collaboration among the private sector, public sector and civil society. So much is at stake.
Enter Lynelle Cameron. Having led sustainability teams at Hewlett Packard, Autodesk, and elsewhere, Lynelle knows this terrain intimately. Her passion is for a sustainable future for all; she has spent 20 years bringing high-profile corporations up to speed on their responsibilities to the environment, and to us.
We’ll learn that in the early 2000s, sustainability gained a foothold in the corporate sector and later became ESG – Environmental, Social, and Governance – an approach investors use to evaluate corporate responsibility and performance. Did it work? And if not, what to do now?
Join us to hear Lynelle Cameron’s experiences in this all-important sustainability movement, and her vision and insights for the regenerative economy that lies ahead for all of us.
