We’ve all heard about carbon footprint for individuals (which can be problematic at times), but what about the carbon footprint for companies? In this Coffee and Conversation, Christian Buechel is going to walk through the components of a carbon footprint for companies at a high level, what types of challenges exist to track this information, and how we can advocate for our employers to calculate theirs.

Christian is a management consultant by day and CCL volunteer by night. He is passionate about understanding how companies view climate policies and finding ways to frame climate change in a way that business leaders can understand. When not volunteering with CCL, he is an avid soccer player and armchair coach for FC Dallas and Chelsea FC.

EVENT FORMAT:
Our presenter will speak for 15 to 20 minutes, then we’ll have an informal Q&A session and discussion for the remainder of the event. This event is held online on Zoom.
