The first in our 2021 Summit Series, the VIRTUAL 2021 PNW Sustainability Summit will bring together subject matter experts, industry leaders, business owners, and community members to provide insight into the relationship between our businesses and the environment. This event is focused on both celebrating and encouraging businesses of all sizes to seek out sustainable business practices to support a strong environment and safeguard against climate change.
According to a 2017 survey by McKinsey, nearly 6 out of 10 businesses are more engaged with sustainability than they were two years prior. 70% of survey respondents indicated their company has some form of sustainability governance, which is up from 54% just three years before. However, until we are at 100% with sustainability governance in place, we see an opportunity to lead and guide our business community into creating and encouraging greater environmental responsibility. Many of our local businesses have discovered that through implementing sustainable business practices that they are not only lowering their carbon footprint but also increasing their profitability.
Join us at this innovative summit to add your voice to the conversation.
