Regenerative Earth Interactive Workshop

  • Thursday, 03/08/2018: 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Room: Marriott, Orange County Ballroom 3


Lawrence Fink, CEO of BlackRock and one of the most influential investors on Wall Street, recently called out corporations to be more socially responsible. Our industry has the opportunity to take it one step further, and that is building the movement for regenerative food and agriculture. How businesses contribute to sustained wellbeing of people, communities, and the planet using regenerative principles is a key focus of this workshop. 

Featuring top business leaders facilitating tabletop discussions, we’ll delve into regenerative approaches for retailers, brands, raw material suppliers, investors, farmers and nonprofits. Walk away inspired with a better understanding of pathways for collaboration, impact, and identifying business opportunities for building a Regenerative Economy.
