Dan Bena is currently the Director of Sustainability, Health, Safety, and Environment for the international division of PepsiCo, serving as liaison between technical functions, government affairs, public policy, and field operations to develop key messaging related to sustainable development to internal and external stakeholder groups. In 2009, Mr. Bena was appointed to the Steering Committee of the United Nations CEO Water Mandate, and also serves on the Mandate's working group for Water as a Human Right. He chairs the Water Resources Committee of the Washington-based American Beverage Association, and has been active in the International Society of Beverage Technologists (ISBT), as an elected Board member, founder and Chair of the Emerging Scientific Interests Subcommittee and - most recently - founder and Co-chair of the Subcommittee for Sustainable Development. Bena also serves on the Board-sponsored Public Health Committee of the Safe Water Network, which is a not-for-profit organization for which PepsiCo was a founding member, dedicated to advancing sustainable, community-level solutions to provide safe drinking water in developing economies. He is a contributing member to the Water Core Working Group of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and serves on the Water Planning Board of the World Economic Forum. In 2009, he was invited by the mayor of his city to serve on a new Sustainability Advisory Board; the city is one of only three nationwide selected to pilot a new sustainability planning tool kit. Dan enjoys academic guest lecturing, most recently for a "Difficult Dialogs" series at Northwestern University Kellogg School, and an Environmental Careers series at the Columbia University School of International Public Affairs. He is a passionate and impactful public speaker, and 100% of his speaking honorarium is donated to a variety of non-profit organizations which are dedicated to helping the planet and the people who borrow and depend on its resources.
