China has undergone spectacular economic growth, but rapid industrialization has negatively impacted the country’s air, land, and water quality. Chinese citizens are increasingly demanding more transparency and accountability from government and business, and in response, some progressive companies have begun to require environmental improvement in factories in their supply chains.

ASNC and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) are partnering to feature one of the most important leaders in China’s growing environmental movement, Ma Jun, in conversation with innovators addressing China’s pollution problems. Named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2006, and winner of the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2012, Ma will describe his groundbreaking efforts to drive improvement. Joining Ma will be Linda Greer of NRDC, and Lenny Mendonca of McKinsey. Melanie Nutter of San Francisco’s Department of Environment will moderate. 

Speakers:
Ma Jun, Founder, Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs
Linda Greer, Director, Health Program, NRDC
Lenny Mendonca, Director, Public Sector Practice, McKinsey; ASNC Board of Advisors
Melanie Nutter (moderator), Director, S.F. Department of Environment
