Your customers may soon demand it. Insurers support it. Investors expect it. Join the Associated Industries of Massachusetts (AIM) Sustainability Roundtable to learn more about It. The “it” is sustainability, which you may know by one of its other names: corporate social responsibility, corporate responsibility, environmental sustainability, or sustainable development. Moderated by Wayne Bates, Ph.D., Vice President at Capaccio Environmental Engineering, Inc., and adjunct professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, upcoming sessions will be held on various dates in Milford and in western Massachusetts.
The elements of sustainability – economic prosperity, social well-being, and environmental stewardship – hold growing importance to customers, employees, investors and regulators. Well-run companies in many industries have been operating in a sustainable manner for years because it’s good business. Today, these companies are requiring their suppliers to do the same. If you’re not already fielding questions from your customers and employees about your sustainability efforts, get ready. It’s only a matter of time.
Where can you turn to get the information you need to create, manage or fine-tune your company’s sustainability program? Register for one or all AIM Sustainability Roundtables for expert analysis, best practices and networking.
