Keynote Speaker: Tim Mohin, Chief Sustainability Officer, Persefoni AI
ExecIn attendees will have a unique behind-the-scenes session with keynote speaker, Tim Mohin. Tim has worked to embed sustainability into business for more than 35 years. He began his career in the policy arena with US Environmental Protection Agency and the US Senate working on issues like the Clean Air Act, the backbone of America’s environmental safety net.
In later roles at Intel, Apple and AMD Tim helped shape the ‘corporate responsibility’ movement as the range of issues grew beyond environmental to include social, economic and governance and the scope grew to the global value chain. More recently, Tim was the Chief Executive of the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). At GRI, he leads the effort to converge sustainability reporting standards and align Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) topics with financial reporting – work that continues to progress.
His book, "Changing Business from the Inside Out" is a manual for people who want to contribute to sustainable development through a career in business. With ESG standards compliance as a major initiative being driven from the top down at many organizations and supply management professionals, like you, helping to facilitate and implement these projects, you don't want to miss this poignant discussion.
