  • Brent Habig, Vice President for Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), will talk about their work with companies such as Apple and H&M on creating sustainable supply chains 

The event will be moderated by Arthur van Benthem, Associate Professor of Business Economics and Public Policy at Wharton and co-faculty lead of Wharton’s Business, Climate, and Environment Lab
