Limits of Growth – Shanghai

While messages of rising carbon emissions, global warming, and planetary alarm seem to be a regular occurrence at the global level, in China the discussion is centered around a more tangible set of limits.

For China, a country whose goal is to surpass the U.S. as the largest economy in the world by 2030, finding a balanced economic model that protects its environment and meets the increasing needs of the urbanized masses is a vision that needs to be realized.

Hosted by Haworth, and sponsored by EATON, this round of Beyond Business As Usual will be focused on the Limits of Growth so that participants can develop a deeper understanding of the issues that China faces, and how business leaders can prepare themselves and their organizations.

We have invited the following speakers to share their thoughts and experience on the limits of urbanization, energy, and water that China faces:

Sean Chen – Eaton, Vice President
Tony Chan – ARUP, Senior Urban Planner
Shunong Yang – Ecolab, Vice President of Research and Development

As with previous sessions, our aim is to turn inspiration into action, and as such we will be allocating a significant amount of time to discussion. So, please come prepared with your questions, your business cards, and ideas about how we can all take a step forward towards Beyond Business as Usual
