Over the past week as part of the new Healthy Climate, Healthy Lives ™ initiative, Biogen hosted a virtual Climate Week event with the Boston Globe that brought together leaders from multiple sectors to discuss the next generation of climate policy and protecting human health.
While the world is still dealing with the ongoing disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re also witnessing historic wild fires in North America destroy millions of acres of forest life, blot out the sun, and cast plumes of smoke as far as Northern Europe.
By Claire McCarthy | Global Director Sustainability, Security & Safety
In my role as Global Director for Sustainability, Security and Safety at Keysight, like many others, I note the exceptionally extraordinary year that 2020 has become. Starting in January, I led Keysight’s Global Crisis Management Team as incident commander for our Covid-19 response. After stabilizing in May, we entered wildfire and hurricane season which is shaping up to be one of the worst years in recent times. To date, greater than 4 million acres have burned on the west coast of the US, and we have run out of letters for named storms in the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Coast.
