Several Congressional Democrats are advancing an economic stimulus package labeled the Green New Deal to help combat climate change. The goal of this plan is to reduce CO2 emissions to 50% of today’s levels by 2030. To meet this target, policies would be initiated that include switching to 100% clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources, the creation of a national energy-efficient "smart" grid, and decarbonization of manufacturing and agricultural industries.

Join our panel of experts as they address:

  • What are the key elements of the Green New Deal? What are the targets? And how realistic is it that they can be achieved?
  • What are the risks and opportunities for businesses to engage in the ambitions of the Green New Deal?
  • How to manage the regulatory burdens of environmental measures and turn them into an advantage?

Who Should Attend: Those with an interest in the economic, business, and policy direction of the US and Global economy
