Automation Alley, Michigan’s largest technology business association, will host a discussion titled “Sustainability and Corporate Success: Opportunities for ‘Greening’ Michigan’s Economy” May 10 from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The event will demonstrate how Michigan businesses can thrive in a tough economy while pursuing environmental sustainability.
Dr. Kirk L. Heinze, director of Agriculture and Natural Resources Communications at Michigan State University, is keynote speaker for the event. Dr. Heinze will speak on the impact of the “Green Revolution” on Michigan businesses. Additional speakers include Nathan M. Gillette, vice president and director of Energy Finance Analytics, LLC; Kelley Losey, director for Quest Sustainable Solutions; Jim Moran, president of Neighborhood Funding Resources, and Stephen M. Quigley, principal and corporate secretary of CRA and a licensed professional engineer in the U.S. and Canada.
Speakers will provide answers to questions such as “What does a sustainable company look like?” and “Which sustainability goals make sense for my individual company?” The event will give companies the information to help decide if a corporate sustainability initiative is right for their organization and give them the tools to begin working toward sustainability, as well as advice for marketing a company’s positive environmental attributes.
The event is sponsored by Conestoga-Rovers & Associates, PM Environmental and Plante Moran and will take place at Automation Alley’s headquarters in Troy, Mich.
