There is a perception that doing the right things for the environment and community costs more, or will mean that the services and products may be of lesser quality. Come hear how business can have a positive environmental, social and economic impact on our community while creating a positive impact on the bottom line. We will discuss how to highlight those positive impacts and motivate community members to talk about the benefits business can bring to our region. Stakeholders are increasingly voicing their concerns about the conduct of business and free enterprise, and we’ll discuss how to harness the power of Corporate Responsibility - sometimes known as Sustainability or Corporate Citizenship - to create shared value within our communities. COME LEARN operational and communications strategies for Corporate Responsibility that will begin a different conversation – one that boosts the profile of your business’ positive impacts while recognizing your efforts to reduce the negative ones.
