A CPRT Expert Dialogue with Bill Weihl and Jennifer Allyn of ClimateVoice
Why Employees Want Companies to “Lobby Like They Mean It” on Climate Policy

A CPRT Expert Dialogue with Bill Weihl and Jennifer Allyn of ClimateVoice

As companies grapple with climate-related risks, employees and potential employees -- especially those in Gen Z or Millennial generations -- are asking tough questions about their firm’s influence on climate policy:
● How are employees and potential employees thinking about CPR and climate policy?
● Why are Big Tech and firms with net zero commitments being asked to elevate climate as a lobbying priority?
● How can employees and companies accelerate action to avoid climate catastrophe?

To explore these questions and more, please join us for an interactive dialogue with Bill Weihl, and Jennifer Allyn of ClimateVoice, who also have experience at Google, Facebook and PwC.

ClimateVoice’s mission is to mobilize the voice of the workforce to urge companies to go “all in” on climate, both in business practices and policy advocacy. Both Bill and Jennifer draw on extensive experience in leading corporate sustainability and diversity functions in global tech and advisory services companies.

The Corporate Political Responsibility Taskforce (CPRT)’s Expert Dialogues are in-depth, recorded conversations with academic experts, stakeholder advocates and business practitioners to provide our members and other CPR champions with the expertise and context they need to develop principled, proactive CPR strategies.

This dialogue is designed for government affairs executives, diversity, equity and inclusion officers, sustainability leaders, academic experts, stakeholder advocates and others interested in CPR (corporate political responsibility). We invite those interested in a constructive, non-partisan, principles-based discussion.
