CGI Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery
Following the devastating 2017 hurricane season, local leaders from Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Dominica, and Antigua and Barbuda approached President Clinton to help them build back better. In response, the Clinton Foundation launched the CGI Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery. Building on CGI’s proven Commitment to Action model, this Action Network brings together leaders from across sectors to develop new, specific, and measurable plans that advance recovery and promote long-term resiliency across the region.

Webinar: Making Emissions Visible—The COMET Method
Wednesday, February 19, 2020
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM MST
This is the first in a series of webinars, brought to you by RMI’s Solutions Council and Innovators Circle on the 7 Challenges for Energy Transformation, and the work we—and a broad network of partners around the world—are driving to address these challenges head-on.
The making of products accounts for a huge chunk of global emissions, and figuring out how to even measure the embedded CO2 in any given item represents a set of thorny problems. The COMET Method will provide an important first step in decarbonizing industry by giving insight into the CO2 emissions from the production of key materials like steel, copper, and cement.
RMI’s Paolo Natali, and special guests Virginia Covo, Global Director for Sustainability Supply Chain at Anheuser-Busch InBev, and Alanna Fishman, Vice President for Advisory Services at Cornerstone Government Affairs will discuss the potential for this market innovation to give powerful insight into the footprint of their global supply chains.
