Every company in western New York should be a good corporate citizen. What does that mean? It means that your company actively engages in protecting the planet, ensuring the well-being of our community, and operating a successful business. These components ─ planet, people, and profits are the three pillars of corporate sustainability.
In this presentation, we’ll discuss what corporate sustainability is, why you should care, and how you can get your company to take the first steps to becoming sustainable. The commitment for any business is a big one, but one that has its rewards.
While becoming a good corporate citizen your business may reap these benefits:
- Improve brand image and competitive advantage
- Increase productivity and reduce costs
- Increase business’ ability to comply with regulation
- Attract employees and investors
- Reduce waste
- Make stakeholders/investors happy
Join our speakers as they discuss the importance of creating a sustainable community and the role of business within that community:
- Aliesa Adelman, LEED AP BD+C, Director of Sustainability, Wendel
- Mark C. Poloncarz, Erie County Executive
