Jason ClaySenior Vice President, Market Transformation at World Wildlife Fund
Clay leads the World Wildlife Fund’s efforts to work with private sector companies to improve their supply chain management, particularly ingredient sourcing and carbon and water neutrality. Clay’s goal is to create global standards for producing and using raw materials, particularly in terms of carbon and water. He has convened industry roundtables of retailers, buyers, producers and environmentalists to reduce the impacts of producing soy, cotton, sugarcane, salmon, shrimp, mollusks, catfish and tilapia. Clay has run a family farm, taught at Harvard and Yale, worked at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and spent more than 25 years working with human rights and environmental organizations. He helped create Ben & Jerry’s Rainforest Crunch ice cream flavor—with sustainably harvested ingredients.
