JERSEY CITY, N.J., Sep. 02 /CSRwire/ - With hurricane season in full swing, President Obama announcing the largest marine reserve off of Hawaii and numerous companies now working on decoding their impact on the environment, Companies vs. Climate Change [#CvCC16] is gearing up fast and furious. Companies Vs Climate Change will take place Nov 30-Dec 2 at the Hyatt Regency Fort Lauderdale www.solveclimatechange.com.

Scheduled on the first anniversary of the historic COP21, CvCC will provoke, prod and congregate solutions on addressing what might be one of the most complex and multidimensional challenges facing business. For example, how is climate change already decoupling supply chains based on rising sea levels, intense heat and extreme weather? How are companies leveraging the age-old efficiencies of scenario planning to better understand environmental impact? And what will our cities look like in the future in order to be sustainable?

With speakers from numerous organizations including TD Bank, EnerNOC, Ingersoll Rand, GE, Avery Dennison, JetBlue, Biogen, Citi, GZA, SAP, Hershey and NYU Stern coming together for a host of conversations and presentations, the event promises to provide deep insights, unique solutions and persistently ask: how can we do this better, at scale or together?   

Chaired by the veteran sustainability journalist duo Aman Singh, Senior Managing Editor for Content Strategy with RF|Binder and TriplePundit Founder Nick Aster, the conference will feature fireside chats, candid dialogues, an unrelenting focus on engagement and multiple ways to interact with an agenda being planned that aims to unravel the many threads of climate change including spatial and temporal data analytics, the challenges and opportunities of setting science based goals, urbanism 3.0, how financial institutions are decoding the puzzle of finding avenues and strategies to help fund the trillions anticipated in need to address climate change globally as well as the science and art of driving sustainability through global operations.

Set in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, which experts estimate to be one of the first American cities to showcase the impact of unaddressed climate change, Companies vs. Climate Change is the forum for you to ask questions, seek out partnerships and co-create an event that has the depth and the intensity of facilitating the kind of dialogues that lead to change. 

Early Bird registration ends on Sept 16! Register today to save $200. To register, sponsor or learn more, visit CvCC or email Jason Youner at jason@solveclimatechange.com.
