Scaling Carbon-Neutral Operations Across Global Restaurant & Retail Chains

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016 from 8:00am – 10:00am 
New York City Bar Association, 1st floor, Hughes Room
42 West 44th Street (between 5th & 6th Avenues), New York, NY

What does it take to scale carbon-neutral operations across international restaurant and retail chains? Doug Satzman, CEO of Le Pain Quotidien, USA and Arnaud Brohé, PhD, Managing Director of CO2Logic, Inc. draw from first-hand experience to discuss the opportunities and challenges involved. Le Pain Quotidien, the Belgian bakery and restaurant company, is well known for its simple, rustic menu and focus on organic, sustainably sourced ingredients. However, it is less known for its leadership in scaling carbon neutral operations across its extensive global reach. Partnering with CO2Logic, the Belgian-headquartered carbon reduction advisory, LPQ has now transformed its 40+ New York restaurants to carbon neutral operations. The company is targeting 2016 to scale this across its 85 restaurants throughout the U.S. and to accomplish this globally by 2020 across locations in 18 countries. Satzman and Brohé share strategies and insights on how best to scale a carbon-neutral plan across global chains and diverse markets.

Join us for a captivating discussion and networking with sustainability professionals!
Coffee & tea will be provided.

Doug Satzman recently became CEO of Le Pain Quotidien, USA and is leading the company toward a nationwide transition to carbon neutral stores after a successful pilot program in the New York region. Prior to joining Le Pain Quotidien, Satzman spent 14 years at Starbucks, where he was a key architect of the company’s growth, leading teams that helped increase store counts from 2,000 to 20,000 globally and last serving as Senior Vice President of Business Development & License Retail operations for Europe, Middle East and Africa. Satzman recently returned from a one-year sabbatical where he worked with young entrepreneurs and sponsored philanthropic projects in Rwanda.

Arnaud Brohé, PhD, is Managing Director of CO2logic an international carbon reduction and offset firm. He is a renowned expert in the field of climate and energy policies (carbon markets, carbon audits, support schemes for renewable energy and energy efficiency), environmental management (energy, waste and biodiversity impacts) and sustainable reporting (GRI). Brohé teaches at Université libre de Bruxelles, and his book Carbon Markets, published by Routledge in 2009, was the winner of the Choice Outstanding Academic Award (2010). Brohé’s new book, a Handbook of Carbon Accounting, will be released by Greenleaf Publishing in September 2016.
