Goals:

The purpose of this meeting is to convene a group of corporate sustainability leaders to outline a strategic sustainability framework for the binational Great Lakes region. The framework will embody principles of sustainability specific to the Great Lakes region and help companies “operationalize” sustainability and craft company‐specific sustainability initiatives. This meeting will be the first of three workshops designed to engage Great Lakes industry and business in developing regional policies, programs and mechanisms that promote economic growth and reflect community values while protecting and restoring the natural resources of the Great Lakes. The initiative will generate a framework for collective industry action that addresses regional sustainability concerns, enhances the bottom line at regional companies, and contributes to risk mitigation.
