Across the region, and the globe, businesses are increasingly recognizing the need to embed sustainability into their core business practices and report on their commitment to environment and climate action, especially in a world overwhelmed by unprecedented environmental challenges.
A sustainable Great Lakes region must include the leadership and involvement of businesses, as they hold a unique opportunity to make decisions and investments that can quickly and effectively impact the region – from decarbonization and circular economy to water stewardship and workforce development.
In this month’s webinar, we will hear one account of corporate sustainability in action. Guest speaker, Erik Petrovskis, Director of Environmental Compliance and Sustainability at Meijer, a Midwest supercenter retail chain, will discuss Meijer’s sustainability pillars and the company’s efforts to embed sustainability in their operations to minimize their environmental footprint in the communities they operate.
(Thursday) 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
