Between 30-40% of food produced annually in the United States is wasted. Meanwhile, 49 million Americans live in food insecure households.

Founder and former Trader Joe’s president Doug Rauch will share his experiences from the early days of starting a mission-driven business.

Tuesday, 2/25: “The Price of Climate Risk
Speaker: Robert Litterman, Chairman of the Risk Committee, Kepos Capital & Retired from Risk Management Career at Goldman Sachs
A collaborative global decision on carbon dioxide emissions pricing must be made soon or the risk of a catastrophic incident linked to the warming of the earth will rise, warns Robert Litterman. He will appeal to a free market philosophy that recognizes increasing risk should come with a price, and suggest that key stakeholders must recognize the inherent risk in emissions, determine the cost of that risk to society, and price that risk accordingly.
