West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum recognizes Brock Rodgers with 2015 Future Hall of Fame Award.

This year the Awards Nominating Committee felt there was a need to begin honoring professionals deserving wider acclaim for their work, with the hope that this recognition might positively impact their status with their organizations, and their careers in general.

Brock Rodgers is the corporate social responsibility program manager for Perrigo, a global leader in quality affordable health care products, where he inspires actions toward improving environmental and product stewardship practices, and impacts strategic plans for global energy, water, and recycling programs.

He previously worked as an environmental engineer at izzy+. He was the lead on environmental issues for izzy+ and its manufacturing sites, and led its BIFMA level® certification initiative for izzy+ products.
He is an active member of West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum, the Community Sustainability Partnership, and West Michigan Environmental Action Council.

Locally in Grand Haven, where he resides, he led the Grand River GreenUp which has empowered over a thousand volunteers since 2010 to remove over 30,000 pounds of trash from the Grand River watershed.  For the last four years has been involved with the Green Team for the Grand Haven Area’s Convention & Visitors Bureau – Salmon Festival (a three day long, certified zero waste-to-landfill event).
