Pushing the Private Sector

Guest

Mindy Lubber

President and CEO of CERES

Fossil fuel companies are under pressure from shareholders, citizens and the courts to shift their business models to reduce emissions or face huge financial consequences. There are now more than 1,500 large corporations with net-zero emission pledges, including one-quarter of the S&P 500.

They spoke about the changes happening in the market and inside boardrooms, and whether any of it is happening fast enough.
