Register to watch Climate Day live during Natural Products Expo West
While global warming represents one of the greatest challenges facing our world, it also presents one of the greatest opportunities for innovation and leadership. The natural products industry has led the way on animal welfare, non-GMO, organic and fair trade. Now it’s time to lead on climate.
Even if you aren't planning on going to Anaheim, you can still join industry leaders for the first ever Climate Day hosted by New Hope Network and the Climate Collaborative at Natural Products Expo West! On March 8, we'll be livestreaming much of the day's events, including a keynote address from Paul Hawken and roundtables with some of the industry's most prominent leaders.
