Have you ever wondered “What does being sustainable mean?” “Why does it matter?” “What must we do to become sustainable?” This seminar is designed to answer these three questions and many more. Prosperous companies of the future will be even more sustainable, with new products and processes. Come learn why!

Those participating will:
have a high level view of our natural environment, and its challenges that involve business;
recognize many of the different tools and techniques that can be used, with examples;
have a start in developing a company specific strategy, business case, plan, and responsibilities.

The seminar is organized around six topical solutions, each of which involves several functional groups. While designed around manufacturing operations, this seminar will benefit people in all industries and functions, and sending a cross functional team will provide additional synergy.

6 topical solutions:
Design for environment
Energy transition

The seventh solution: strategy
