MCT’s 2020 Maine Climate Summit, September 16, 2020
How the business sector can lead Maine’s climate transition
Maine businesses know the climate is changing. Climate change presents both financial risk and opportunity. Many Maine business sectors, like fisheries, forestry, and agriculture depend directly on the climate. Others depend on global supply chains affected by climate in other parts of the world.
In short, the business community is on the front lines of climate adaptation and mitigation. It is also in the most powerful position to transform to a new climate economy, fast.
Join us for a one-day summit to learn what the business community is doing, and can do, to lead the climate change fight in Maine and beyond. We will learn about the future of affordable electric vehicles and explore how our natural resource sectors are already adapting to a changing climate. We will learn how the finance sector is shifting to leverage investment in climate innovation in Maine.
Prepare to learn, to be inspired, and to come away hopeful about what the for-profit sector in Maine is doing to help solve the biggest challenge of the 21st century.
