At GreenBiz 19, BSR's CoLab will convene private-sector sustainability leaders and select NGOs in an interactive, engaging workshop designed to scale collective advocacy for an economy-wide carbon price. 

Using CoLab's "Ideate, Design, Explore, Accelerate, Scale" (IDEAS) process, participants will share the opportunities and challenges of creating a viable carbon pricing scheme at the regional, national, and global levels—including internal company efforts which empower them to be effective advocates. 

At this invite-only event, participants will start to build a business case for action and share stories of their aspirations, concerns, and experiences as corporate advocates in a time of both uncertainty and renewed hope. 

Join Eric Olson, Senior Vice President of BSR, and Anne Kelly, Director of Policy at Ceres, to collaborate, co-create, and network.  

Join more than 1,200 sustainability leaders at GreenBiz 19 (February 26-28 in Phoenix, Arizona). The annual GreenBiz forum convenes decision makers from across sectors to explore emerging trends and promising opportunities in sustainable business. Save 20 percent with code GB19BSR.
