This discussion is the culmination of a three-day Cornell Global Forum.  At the forum, 100 pioneers will seek innovative ways to transform business and the environment, while exploring the intersection between clean technology and business development at the “Base of the Pyramid”, the socioeconomic designation of the world’s four and-a-half billion poor. The goal is to create profitable businesses that raise the quality of life for the world's poor, respect cultural diversity, and conserve the ecological integrity of the planet. 

Panelists include:  former Vice President Al Gore, Chairman, Generation Investment Management LLP; Cornell University's Stuart L. Hart, an authority on the implications of sustainable development and environmentalism for business strategy; H. Fisk Johnson, chairman and CEO of the board of S.C. Johnson & son; and Ratan N. Tata, chairman of Tata Sons Limited, the holding company of the Tata Group, India's largest conglomerate.
