Description: Please join us to officially kick off the Outdoor + Snow Show 2020. At this year’s Kickoff Breakfast, we want to use this opportunity to mobilize our industry on the most pressing environmental issue of our time: climate change. With the latest UN climate report clearly stating that “deeper and faster emissions cuts are now required” to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, it’s clear that as an industry with so much at stake, we have to act in a meaningful and ambitious way.
We need urgent action to address the climate challenge ahead of us, and we won’t get there without courageous business leaders stepping up. At this year’s Kickoff Breakfast, we’ve assembled a group of executives who are exhibiting this bold leadership – to discuss their commitment to lead on climate change and to outline achievable strategies that every business can act on right now. Join SIA, OIA, and NSAA for an inspiring conversation and clear direction on how you and your company can effect change.
