Yvon Chouinard speaks to Business Sustainability & Climate Change

Global Partner

A recent talk between Patagonia founder, Yvon Chouinard and 1% for the Planet CEO, Kate Williams points the needle at the key role of sustainable business practices in order to offset the effects of climate change.

See Change Sessions:  Summits on Climate Action, Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Outdoor Sports

As part of the recent See Change Sessions, Yvon Chouinard sat down with 1% for the Planet CEO Kate Williams to delve into the intersection between business and environmental action. See Change Sessions host exceptional networking summits focused on climate action, sustainable entrepreneurship, and the outdoor sports arena. Each summit is attended by business CEOs, founders, athletes, investors, tech leaders, entrepreneurs and committed individuals who come to speak, listen, and seek solutions about the most pressing issues facing not only the outdoor sports industry, but the planet at large.

No one knows that space better than Chouinard. Patagonia’s founder has spent the bulk of his 82 years and a successful business life advocating for environmental action, sustainable change and calling on government systems to lay down a path towards protecting our planet.

“Climate change is the elephant in the middle of the room. Nothing else really matters.” – Yvon Chouinard

Kate Williams sat down with the legendary businessman and philanthropist in a virtual talk – seen here on video – to ask some hard questions about business, environmental advocacy, and of course, Chouinard’s passion for fly fishing, too.
