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

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.
