SXSW 2022

Building a Sustainable Future


On this panel we will explore what "sustainability" really means for businesses, from agricultural practices, community governed investing models, and CPG products to building safer, stronger and more equitable communities. From the unique perspectives of four sustainability leaders in different industries - a climate activist, a cannabis entrepreneur spearheading regenerative agriculture, an impact investing organization creating sustainable and equitable food systems and a clean beauty brand with an earth-first mission - we will discuss how businesses are centering sustainable practices, community needs and voices, and redistribution of wealth into their operations, culture and supply chains, and the ways entrepreneurs can contribute to a sustainable future.
