Central Coast Climate Action Summit to Discuss Climate Change Resiliency
The Monterey Bay Economic Partnership, Greenpower, CSUMB, The Central Coast Climate Collaborative, and CA Green Business Network are hosting a virtual business session on October 8th as part of their Climate Summit Series.
The session will feature state and local policy leaders who will provide an update on climate-related legislation, its implications on businesses, and available programs and resources needed to cut costs, increase revenue and drive change.
Hear directly from business leaders on how they are adapting to current health, economic and environmental challenges, and meeting state, local and company climate goals. Learn how companies are reshaping their systems, and operationalizing sustainability and social equity while meeting their bottom line. Participants are encouraged to share policy implementation concerns and questions as well as strategies and resources that may not have been presented.
