The Antidote to Climate Depression: How to Solve Climate by 2030

Description

You hear the term Sustainability Consulting and think, "Sounds like an interesting job. Can I do it? Should I do it?"

According to Hunter Lovins, “Sustainability consultants, at their best, make the case for radical innovation. They can push a company to take steps that may be unpopular but that make solid business sense, and that address the fundamental roots of environmental and social challenges.” What skill sets are required to drive this kind of change? What are the different types of opportunities within sustainability consulting?

Hear from a cohort of sustainability consultants about careers helping organizations along their sustainability journey.

Behind the Creative Curtain: How Etsy is Leading E-Commerce on Climate Change

In 2019, Etsy became the first major online shopping destination to offset 100% of carbon emissions from shipping. Now, every time an item is purchased on Etsy, the company balances out the carbon emissions by creating positive environmental impact. When Etsy moved to reduce their carbon footprint, they discovered that 98% of their emissions come from shipping— a process which they do not control. Despite this challenge, Etsy developed a low-cost strategy to offset the emissions from every item shipped through it’s platform - a true revolution in the e-commerce industry.

Join LMHQ and Bard MBA in Sustainability to hear from the Etsy team on how they arrived at this climate solution and then executed on this endeavor.

Speakers include:

Chelsea Mozen, Director of Sustainability, Etsy

Lindsay Vellines, Integrated Marketing Manager, Etsy

This event is presented in collaboration with the Bard MBA in Sustainability Program. The Bard MBA in Sustainability is a hybrid MBA program that fully embeds sustainability into a core business curriculum. It meets once-monthly over a four day weekend at LMHQ with online classes in between. Information at bard.edu/mba.

Doors open at 6; program begins at 6:30pm. Refreshments will be served.
