The Wharton Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership 12th Annual Conference

November 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm

The focus of the conference will be to discuss how the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) play a critical role in the transformation to an equitable economy.  The SDGs provide a framework that allows business to connect corporate goals with innovative solutions – linking technology and global infrastructure to environmental needs, while highlighting the importance of a strong foundation grounded in gender leadership and education.  The conversation will elaborate on how economic growth will flourish under comprehensive corporate sustainable action plans.  Join IGEL as we present business cases that feature transformational goals and how they will lead us to a better future.
