The Future of
Environmental Responsibility

Legislative & Regulatory Implications to Environmental Responsibility

Washington, DC | September 12-13, 2022

Legislative & Regulatory Implications to Environmental Responsibility

Washington, DC | September 12-13, 2022

We will focus on the broadened landscape of responsibilities: social equity, economic awareness, and environmental stewardship. We will delve into these themes with honesty, vulnerability, and humility. Diverse voices from different disciplines and backgrounds will lean into this together. It’s time for the DFC to collectively speak into these truths and emerge with reconcilable action.

For every serious sustainability professional, every person desiring collective design community truth regarding our record of irresponsibility, and for leaders anxious for answers to the most important issues facing our industry today . . . this is where you need to be.
