Becky Quick at the Clinton Global Initiative in conversation with Pres. Clinton and execs at Barclays, Hershey, Monsanto, Apple

The global economic crisis that took hold six years ago and the subsequent recession raised new hopes, expectations, and fears about the relationship between corporations and consumers. While more than 50 percent of consumers worldwide say that they are willing to reward companies that give back to society, they often still pick the easy and affordable options that provide short-term gratification and convenience. Corporations are exploring how to produce meaningfully sustainable products and services that are better for consumer health, fairer to those who produce them, and cleaner for our planet, while also helping consumers navigate an abundance of choices.
