On Wednesday, March 19, at 11 a.m. ET (8 a.m. PT /15:00 GMT), Al Gore, John Chambers and Sue Bostrom will come together in a virtual unified communications environment to examine the critical role that innovation can play in mitigating climate change. If you haven’t started thinking about how your own organization can play a role in this global challenge or if you’re interested in learning how technology innovation can help lower greenhouse gas emissions, we encourage you to attend this discussion online. Just last month, The McKinsey Quarterly published a survey on how companies think about climate change. The survey of global executives breaks down the importance of considering climate change in strategic planning. The survey contains many interesting data points, but one particular set of responses clearly identifies that executives believe climate changes must be considered in many important strategic decisions. Almost two-thirds of respondents believe that reducing the organizations carbon footprint to be very important or somewhat important.
