Business Stepping Up: The Lovins Series

Thursday, March 15, 2018

<<<<< TICKETS HERE >>>>>
As President Trump pursues a regressive, isolationist agenda, business is stepping up to address climate change, promote equality and protect human rights, and create economic opportunity. Join sustainability pioneer Hunter Lovins for a conversation series with industry experts to explore this shift in progressive business leadership.

Our March Business Stepping Up conversation will feature JD Capuano, Senior Strategist with Third Partners and Professor of Data, Analytics, and Decisions at Bard's MBA in Sustainability. He will be discussing how big data has transformed business decision making and how companies are using data to measure their progress towards climate change action.

JD Capuano is a Senior Strategist with Third Partners, a sustainability consultancy focused on responsible business strategy, data science and marketing. JD works with clients on sustainability strategy and data projects across industries at Fortune 500 and privately-held companies. He does some independent strategy consulting on business process optimization and marketing science. JD co-founded and led Closed Loop Advisors, a data-driven sustainability management consultancy, from 2011 until 2016. Prior to his work in sustainability, JD spent nearly a decade in global business analytics at Schering-Plough (now Merck). At Schering-Plough, his responsibilities ranged from coding and analyzing big data sets to being a dedicated in-house management consultant for VPs in marketing and sales. His career began pioneering a role that maximized use of the internet to grow business at a mid-sized recruiting firm. JD has consulted at an executive level on strategic and operational challenges for over a decade, striking a balance between innovation and practicality while planning and implementing projects. He speaks at sustainability and technology events, has been recognized by Crain’s New York, and his work has been cited in Bloomberg Businessweek. JD has been involved with a number of nonprofit programs focused on the environment and civic engagement.
