Keynote: Creating a World that We Want

9:15am  -  9:45am, Tuesday, May 9, 2017  |  Grand Ballroom

Vien Truong, Director for Green for All, will connect the dots between purchasing by large organizations and social, economic, and environmental justice. To create a world that is truly healthy, prosperous, safe, and biodiverse will require more than just minding GHGs and PMs. It will involve responding to the needs of the people and communities left out of economic opportunity, or, impacted negatively by industrial activity. Purchasers can be pivotal in ensuring that the voices of these communities are heard in ways that will make a difference.
