Keynote Panel September 23: Climate Leadership, Action & Resilience:

New York State’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), enacted earlier this year, sets the state on a path to achieve carbon neutrality over the next two decades. The aggressive and necessary legislation was a challenge prior to Covid and now implementation needs to be thought about within the context of our new economic reality. But climate and covid crisisis also present business opportunities and new emerging markets which can be leveraged. This panel discussion will explore why now is the perfect time to make the needed shift in our carbon use and how community solutions can be at the forefront of needed action. Confirmed Keynote Panelists: Scott Scheffler @ MOOG, Dennis Elsenbeck @ Phillips Lytle / Viridi Parente & Riva Krut @ Praxair. Moderator: Maureen Leddy @ NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
