Agenda

Keynote Session - A Generation On: Environmental Protection in the 21st Century
What does an updated approach to environmental protection look like for the 21st Century? How do we move from a 20th century model of environmental regulation to a new 21st century sustainability strategy that builds on the successes of the past five decades? Join Dan Esty, Hillhouse Professor at Yale University and Director of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy, as he outlines a vision for a more effective approach to environmental, energy, and sustainability issues management – centered on innovation, emphasizing choice over government mandates and advancing a systems approach that recognizes interconnections across issues. Rather than looking to government to do all the work of environmental protection, Esty will outline the role and opportunities he sees for business as we shift to a more effective and modern approach to sustainability. Attendees will come away from the session with a fresh perspective on how environmental policy might be done differently and better in the years ahead – and the critical role business must play in any environmental reform effort.
