In Conversation: Paul Polman

July 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Presented by GreenBiz:

Over the past decade, Paul Polman has emerged as one of the most influential business voices in sustainability. During his 10-year reign as CEO of Unilever (following 27 years at Procter & Gamble), he led the company’s Sustainable Living Plan, a multifaceted effort to decouple its growth from its overall environmental footprint and improve its social impact. Since leaving Unilever, he formed Imagine, whose goal is to help companies meet the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development. He also served as chair of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and is currently chair of the International Chamber of Commerce.

In this intimate, one-on-one conversation with GreenBiz Executive Editor Joel Makower, Polman will discuss the future of business in the post-pandemic era, including how to redesign business and commerce to better address both sustainability and social challenges.
