West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum will host the West Michigan Sustainable Business Conference on Monday, March 13 at Davenport University.
The annual half-day event will bring together sustainability practitioners and stakeholders from business, government, non-profits and academia to discuss business practices that promote climate and energy resiliency, social responsibility, and a circular economy.
The event will feature three forum discussions focused on the most pressing issues to sustainable business in 2017:
- Creating a Circular Economy features experts from different scales of the material value chain, public and private, who will offer unique perspectives on how organizations and their local and national communities can leverage circular design and waste diversion unlock economic value.
- Finding Motivation for Clean Energy and Climate Action highlights diverse approaches to clean energy investments and responses to climate change.
- The Role of Business in 2017 explores how the private sector can take a leadership position on pressing social and environmental issues, featuring leaders from organizations that are aggressively working to address systemic or divisive issues.
