The Business Case for Sustainability
was little more than an environmental buzzword in corporate America a decade ago. Today it is a way of doing business that many companies have embraced in principle and, increasingly, in practice. The companies on the panel understand that integrating social and environmental issues into their operations benefits both their bottom lines and opportunities for long-term growth.
Please join the Maine State Chamber, VOX Global and the Maine Development Foundation for a panel discussion with three corporate sustainability executives. Panelists will share their insights on internal and external challenges they’ve overcome, how they have integrated sustainability inside their own companies, the competitive and reputational benefits they have achieved by doing so, and the forces and trends within their markets.
