Our planet is threatened by the dangers of climate change, and with that threat comes more companies and individuals committing to carbon neutrality to help in the fight against climate change. In this panel, discussion will focus on how a company like Salesforce achieved net zero carbon emissions and how they worked with small but mighty dedicated organizations like Cool Effect to helped them reach that milestone. Patagonia is known by their mission to build the best products but without causing unnecessary harm. Through various avenues, including gaining inspiration from young minds at the Berkeley Haas Patagonia Case Competition, they are working to implement carbon neutrality by 2025 and inspire other business along the way.
