EarthArizona 2020 is an all-day business summit with sessions and workshops designed to address important topics tailored to Arizona-specific climate change risks such as extreme heat, drought, declining air quality and impacts to human health. The summit will assess the status of Arizona today, evaluate strategies and determine action steps for the future.
Now is the time to take climate action. Arizona is poised to take a proactive approach to potential climate change risks. Stakeholders agree that major changes can take place at the local level. All of us can play a role: large and small business, municipalities, state government, nonprofits, educational institutions, policy makers and others.
More and more businesses are taking action inside and outside of their organizations to become more resilient to climate impacts and are taking a proactive approach to reduce their own emissions. Businesses are also demonstrating their commitment to climate action by partnering with other companies and stakeholders on solutions and by supporting policies that can impact their state and business. Whats more, public scrutiny is heightening toward organizations that do not have specific climate goals or plans in place, making it beneficial for businesses that take an early action on climate strategies to gain sustained competitive advantages along with customer loyalty.
Private and public sector engagement is critical for developing well-rounded solutions to the climate problem in Arizona.This Summit will provide attendees with a deeper understanding of the risks and opportunities related to climate action, determine potential solutions and what is necessary to create transition plans for win-win results.
It is time to rise to the challenge to secure Arizona’s economic future and quality of life.
