WEC remarks from OAS dialogue on private sector environmental performance

WEC President & CEO Terry Yosie was invited by the Department of Sustainable Development of the Organization of American States (OAS) to speak in its Dialogue Series "Improving Environmental Performance of the Private Sector through Law and Institutions." The dialogue, held at the OAS in Washington, DC, on May 17, 2012, is part of a larger framework to prepare for the Rio+20 conference in June.

The Dialogue discussions analyzed contributions of the private sector throughout Latin America and also explored the following issues:
•    Shared experiences and sustainable development challenges faced by the private sector;
•    The contribution of law and  policy to improve private sector performance;
•    Creation of  a  space  for  constructive   dialogue   to  identify  and support  opportunities  for strengthening  the capacity of  the private sector towards sustainability; and
•    Dissemination of successful examples of public-private partnerships in environmental matters and sustainable development.
