NEW YORK, NY- April 25, 2016 – The Provost’s Faculty Research Seminar at Baruch College invites you to its second seminar of the Spring 2016 Climate Change Series with climate and human rights specialist Edward Cameron on Thursday, May 5. Edward Cameron, PhD, will speak about the growing volume of action and ambition in the private sector to understand risk and build climate resilience and will explore how the Paris Agreement dramatically changes the landscape for businesses operating in an increasingly globalized economy.

Cameron has 20 years of experience working with national governments, international development agencies, global think tanks, and with some of the world’s most recognized companies. He is the managing director at Business for Social Responsibility (BSR), a global non-profit that works with 270 multinational corporations to achieve a just and sustainable world. Additionally, Cameron serves as Policy Director for the We Mean Business Coalition, an unprecedented alliance of seven business-facing networks driving private sector engagement with global climate change policy.

Free and open to the public, the seminar will look at both the risks of climate change and how our collective response to this risk can catalyze a thriving clean economy.
