About the Program

Join OSC2 and Naturally Bay Area for a special follow up to Global Climate Action Summit, with special content from the Climate Collaborative. The event will feature afternoon workshops on implementing packaging and agriculture programs, a happy hour, and an evening leadership program focused on ramping up climate action within our industry.

One month out from the Global Climate Action Summit in California, we’ll be reflecting on the summit’s key takeaways and our industry’s role in responding to the global climate crisis. Undersecretary Jenny Lester Moffitt from the California Department of Food and Agriculture will join us to share her perspective on climate change.

You’ll also hear updates on the Climate Collaborative, including insights from their new Tracking Progress Update. The project has just surpassed more than 300 businesses making over 1100 commitments—if you haven’t signed up to action yet, we hope you’ll take some time to join your peers and do so now at https://www.climatecollaborative.com/take_action.

We’ll then convene an all-star CEO panel to talk about some examples of the ways our industry is already leading the way on responding to climate change.
