"No industry has a bigger impact on climate change than agriculture and food, both as a source of the problem and as a solution." —Paul Hawken

Join us on May 10 for our next installment of Future of Food with the progressive climate author/activist Paul Hawken, and two visionary leaders of the natural products industry, Sheryl O'Loughlin, CEO of REBBL, and Ahmed Rahim, CEO of Numi Tea / CoFounder of OSC2. Paul Hawken & the Project Drawdown team have been advisors and contributors to the Climate Collaborative, a project of OSC2 and SFTA, which now maintains over 200 participating companies who collectively logged 800+ climate action commitments since launching at Expo West last year.

The evening will feature an inspiring keynote by Paul Hawken, featuring updates and lessons learned since Project Drawdown's 2017 launch, as well as a candid conversation with Paul, Ahmed, and Sheryl exploring the implications for mission-driven natural products companies and their leaders.

The program, led by Lara Dickinson, CoFounder and Executive Director of OSC2, will begin with the latest news from the Climate Collaborative, a community of businesses joining forces to create pathways to action, to connect companies to resources, and to work together to create climate beneficial solutions.
