Featuring Mark Tercek, CEO and President of The Nature Conservancy
Lecture: Don't Complain, Blame, or Worry. Do Something: How You Can Take Action on Climate Change Now
Formerly a managing director and partner for Goldman Sachs, Mark Tercek serves as president and CEO of The Nature Conservancy, the global conservation organization known for its intense focus on collaboration and getting things done for the benefit of people and nature. Tercek, who was appointed by President Obama to the president's Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations in 2016, is a champion of the idea of natural capital -- valuing nature for its own sake as well as for the services it provides for people, such as clean air and water, productive soils and a stable climate.
