resiliency: adapting sustainability efforts under pandemic conditions

Our lives have changed significantly in the last few months as the COVID-19 pandemic shifted how we work, live, and interact with the world around us. At this event, we will explore how organizations are adapting their sustainability programs under pandemic conditions. Topics of discussion may include whether sustainability priorities have shifted, how sustainability programs will allow us to ‘build back better’, and what the long term impacts of the pandemic could be on sustainability commitments. Our speakers span the technology, building, and transportation sectors:

  • Susanna Kass —Data Center Advisor for the UN Sustainable Development Goals
  • Ben Stapleton —Executive Director, U.S. Green Business Council Los Angeles Chapter
  • Eva Moir —Transportation Planning Manager, LA Metro

Each of the speakers will share a bit about their experiences and work in relation to our theme, followed by an audience Q&A moderated by IoES Alum Gregory Lopez, Social & Environmental Impact Consultant.

The event will conclude with a ‘reception’ where audience members can opt into rooms to chat directly with the speakers.

While free and open to the public over Zoom, we do request that you RSVP for this event on Eventbrite.
