About the Program
This talk will look at both the risks of climate change and how our collective response to these risks can catalyze a thriving, clean economy. Dr. Cameron will address the growing desire in the private sector to understand risk and build climate resilience. He will also explore how the Paris Agreement dramatically changes the landscape for businesses operating in an increasingly globalized economy.
About the Speaker
Dr. Edward 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. He is Managing Director at BSR, a global non-profit that works with 270 multinational corporations to achieve a just and sustainable world. Dr. Cameron 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 impacts.
