The program opened with remarks from Board Member Ann Friedman, who showed Mother Nature from the Nature Is Speaking film series.

To honor members of the United States Congress who have gone above and beyond in support of CI’s conservation efforts around the world, CI’s CEO and Chairman Peter Seligmann presented Global Conservation Hero awards to Senator Rob Portman, Senator Tom Udall and Representative Kay Granger, who then described their passion for nature and their engagement with CI in their own words.

New York Times Op-Ed columnist Tom Friedman led a conversation between Wal-Mart CEO Doug McMillon and Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on sustainability in the public and private sector, touching upon the historic importance of CI’s relationship with Wal-Mart and the role it continues to play advising the company on supply chain sustainability.

The evening closed with remarks from Board Member Alexander Karsner, CEO and Founder of Manifest Energy, LLC.
