Purpose and citizenship goals are being sewn into the fabric of companies small and big, old and new. How is ESG transforming business as usual? As these principles become more mainstream, how are companies evaluating their value proposition and establishing best practices? And should there be global standards and metrics in place for what constitutes ESG?

Join The Hill on Wednesday, June 30 for a national summit on ESG with CEOs, regulators, investment experts, activists, and others leading the way towards purpose-driven business models.

Wednesday, June 30

bands starting at 1:00 PM ET/10:00 AM PT (times subject to change)

Band One: What is ESG? (1:00 PM ET/10:00 AM PT)

ESG is a term often used but rarely defined. This hour will explore what good environmental social and corporate governance practices look like and what companies are doing and can still do to achieve a higher purpose.

Band Two: How Do We Measure Success? (2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT)

Whether companies have long had ESG strategies in place or are currently transitioning from the ground up, what is the measuring stick used to determine movement in the right direction? What metrics can we utilize? Are a set of global standards needed?

Band Three: The Road to Zero-Emission Trucks: Charging Infrastructure (3:15 PM ET/12:15 PM PT)

presented by Environmental Defense Fund

The transportation sector is the largest and fastest-growing source of climate pollution in the US. And trucks account for over a quarter of transportation’s greenhouse gas emissions. As manufacturers embrace EV technology at an unprecedented pace and scale, what does the future hold for electric trucks?
