|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

About the Speaker
is director of research and founding partner of Muddy Waters Research LLC. Muddy Waters is a due diligence-based investment and research firm that conducts extensive accounting and on-the-ground investigations of public companies. Bloomberg Markets Magazine named Mr. Block as one of the “50 Most Influential in Global Finance” in 2011. In 2012, Muddy Waters received the Financial Times Boldness in Business Award.
FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC with prior registration.
Muddy Waters gained fame following its research on Sino-Forest Corp., a China-based forestry company listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. Shortly after Muddy Waters issued its report in June 2011, Sino-Forest lost nearly $6 billion in market capitalization, its auditor resigned, regulators halted its shares and charged former management with fraud. The company filed for bankruptcy and in June 2012, the Ontario Securities Commission filed formal fraud charges against Sino-Forest and its senior management for overstating its timber assets and misleading investigators. In total, Muddy Waters has issued 10 “strong sell” recommendations resulting more than $8 billion of downward market cap adjustments, four de-listings and at least six regulatory investigations into company managements.
Mr. Block appears frequently as a commentator on Bloomberg Television, CNBC and the BBC. He has written op-eds in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, and New York Times on various topics related to improving corporate governance and market transparency..
Prior to forming Muddy Waters, Mr. Block was an entrepreneur in China and worked as a lawyer in the Shanghai office of the U.S. law firm Jones Day. In 2007, he co-authored Doing Business in China for Dummies, a primer on doing business in China. He holds a B.S. in business from the University of Southern California and a J.D. from the Chicago-Kent College of Law, where he has also served as an adjunct professor.
About Muddy Waters Research
Muddy Waters, LLC is a pioneer in on-the-ground, freely published investment research. Muddy Waters peels back the layers, often built up by seemingly respected but sycophantic law firms, auditors, and venal managements. Muddy Waters prides itself on being able to assess a company’s true worth, and being able to see through the opacity and hype that some managements create. Its research approach is to combine diverse talents, including accountants, trained investigators, valuation experts and entrepreneurs, many of whom have hands-on experience running businesses in the U.S. and emerging markets.
Muddy Waters produces three types of research product: Business fraud, accounting fraud, and fundamental problems. Business fraud reports focus on issuers that have massively overstated their revenues. Accounting fraud reports expose businesses that boost profits through fraud. Fundamental problem reports discuss opaque businesses that have serious fundamental problems that the market does not yet perceive.
