Sustainability Summit 2018

Thursday, November 1, 2018

You are invited to The New York Botanical Garden for an intimate evening of thought-provoking dialogue and actionable ideas about how environmental stewardship is catalyzing industry innovation and investment.

Join NYBG CEO and President Carrie Rebora Barratt, Ph.D., and a powerful lineup of visionary leaders and innovators as they discuss the influence and impact of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how they are affecting the way businesses, communities, and nonprofits operate. Held at NYBG’s 250-acre urban oasis in New York City, the evening begins at Ross Hall with cocktails and conversation, followed by two panel sessions, Performance-Driven Sustainability: At the Core of Business Practice and Building a Sustainable Future: Business Initiatives That Deliver Meaningful Results. At dinner, we will hear from Lord Norman Foster, Executive Chairman of Foster + Partners, who is being recognized for lifetime achievement in architecture and sustainable design.

Proceeds from the Summit support NYBG’s Sustainability Initiatives and the Center for Conservation Strategy, which advances global research to preserve and protect the vast biodiversity of the planet through thoughtful dialogue, scientific research, and collaborations with leaders in the field.
