June 28-29 I GreenFin

Water: A Rising Tade on the Corporate Agenda. The global water crisis is both an economic and humanitarian crisis — an unmitigated risk to global supply chains, profits and the well-being of communities and populations around the world. Through the U.N. Global Compact, CEO Water Mandate and the Water Resilience Coalition (WRC), a growing cohort of corporations recognize that philanthropy alone won’t suffice to solve the global water crisis. They see themselves as playing an increasingly material role in the innovation, collaboration and delivery of investment capital needed to solve the escalating crisis. Leading voices tackle the increased role corporate water investments have in driving meaningful collective action toward a water-positive future.

Speakers include:

  • Mai-Lan Ha, Deputy Head, CEO Water Mandate, UN Global Compact
  • Emilio Tenuta, SVP & CSO, Ecolab
  • Vedika Bhandarkar, COO, Water.org
  • Jackie VanderBrug, Head of Sustainable & Impact Investment Strategy, Bank of America
  • Una Hrnjak-Hadziahmetovic, Head of Sustainability Strategy & Programs, Starbucks
