EDGE executive director Dan Vermeer has joined the Program Committee for the 2020 ClimateCAP Summit. Conceptualized and first hosted at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business, ClimateCAP is a partnership between 16 top-tier business schools, including Wharton, Harvard, Stanford, Michigan, and MIT, along with Duke and others.
The 2020 Summit will be hosted by the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business on Feb. 21-22. MBA students from any university are eligible to attend the Summit, which focuses on the business risks and opportunities of climate change.
“Climate change is top of mind for many investors and entrepreneurs right now. So, ClimateCAP is a great opportunity for MBA students to engage with business leaders to learn more about the physical and capital risks that climate change will present to the businesses they will lead in the future,” said EDGE managing director Katie Kross.
Dan Vermeer joins others on the committee, including Jennifer Nash, Director of Harvard Business School’s Business & Environment Initiative, Will Teichman, Vice President of Business Operations at Kimco Realty Corporation, and Katherine Neebe, Walmart’s Senior Director of ESG, Trust & Transparency.
