|12:45 PM - 2:00 PM ||Business in a Climate-Compatible World
Join Us for the Second Seminar in the Spring 2016 Baruch Climate Change Series
This Free program in room 14-280 is Open To The Public, and is sponsored by the Provost's Faculty Research Seminar
Edward Cameron, PhD, Managing Director, Business for Social Responsibility
Cameron is a specialist in climate change and human rights with 20 years
of professional experience working with national governments,
international development agencies, global think tanks and with some of
the world’s most recognized companies. Edward is Managing Director at
BSR, a global non-profit that works with 270 multinational corporations
to achieve a just and sustainable world. He leads BSR’s climate practice
with the twin goals of driving aggressive greenhouse gas emissions
reductions commensurate with holding global mean temperature rises to
less than 2C above pre-industrial levels; and enhancing the adaptive
capacity of business and society in the face of inevitable climate
He also serves as Policy Director for the We Mean Business Coalition, an
unprecedented alliance of seven business-facing networks driving
private sector engagement with global climate change policy. Edward has
previously served with the World Resources Institute and the World Bank
during six years in Washington, DC; has been a Senior Advisor in the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Maldives; and spent nine years
working in Brussels with the European Union. He holds a PhD in Social
Science, Economics and Business and has earned degrees in Ireland,
Belgium and Finland.
poses significant and accelerating material risks for business and
society. Growing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere
lead to global mean temperature rises and associated growth in a range
of hazards including extreme weather events, changes in water patterns,
sea-level rises, and acidification of the oceans. This in turn
exacerbates risks to business and society by threatening natural
resources, undermining ecosystem services, destroying livelihoods and
homes, and damaging vital infrastructure. On the other hand recent
global policy responses to climate change, notably the signing of the
landmark Paris Agreement in December, are creating new market
opportunities worth trillions of dollars for businesses willing to adopt
climate compatible products, services, and operations.
This event will be held in room 14-280. Lunch will be served at 12:15 p.m.
This talk will look at both the risks of climate change and how our
collective response to this risk can catalyze a thriving clean economy.
Edward Cameron will speak about the growing volume of action and
ambition in the private sector to understand risk and build climate
resilience and will explore how the Paris Agreement dramatically changes
the landscape for businesses operating in an increasingly globalized

“Directors Tyler Measom and Justin Weinstein turn a standard bio-doc about an extraordinary man into a rumination on the blurred line between trickery and truth.”
- Ariel Teplitsky, Toronto Star
“Absorbing… The film feels like an enchanting magic act with its web of lies, cheats, and reveals. An Honest Liar leaves one doubting the power of so-called-mystics, but it successfully conjures the magic of movies.”
- Patrick Mullen, Point of View Magazine
