CPRT Expert Dialogue: Why Employees Want Companies to “Lobby Like They Mean It” on Climate Policy

September 23 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm EDT

CPR & Why Employees Want Companies to “Lobby Like They Mean It” on Climate Policy
A CPRT Expert Dialogue with Bill Weihl and Jennifer Allyn of ClimateVoice

As companies grapple with climate-related risks, employees and potential employees — especially those in Gen Z or Millennial generations — are asking tough questions about their firm’s influence on climate policy:

  • How are employees and potential employees thinking about CPR and climate policy?
  • Why are Big Tech and firms with net zero commitments being asked to elevate climate as a lobbying priority?
  • How can employees and companies accelerate action to avoid climate catastrophe?

To explore these questions please join us on September 23 from 3:00-4:15 pm ET for our expert dialogue with Bill Weihl, and Jennifer Allyn of ClimateVoice. The dialogue will be moderated by CPRT Director, Elizabeth Doty.

ClimateVoice’s mission is to mobilize the voice of the workforce to urge companies to go “all in” on climate, both in business practices and policy advocacy. Both Bill and Jennifer draw on extensive experience including at Google, Facebook and PwC in leading corporate sustainability and diversity functions in global tech and advisory services companies.

The Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce (CPRT) provides forums, foresight and frameworks to help companies better align their political influences with their commitments to values, purpose, sustainability and stakeholders. Our Expert Dialogues are in-depth, recorded conversations where our Expert Affiliates, Stakeholder Advisors, Network Partners and other colleagues share their expertise and answer questions about pressing CPR issues.
