With many corporations setting sustainability goals that will mature in the near term, strategic planning for the next generation of goals has begun. This event focuses on high-level benchmarking and the implications in terms of business goals, exploring lessons learned from experience, and the means to leverage those lessons to achieve success in the future. The event will feature a look at one company’s (Wrigley) journey to achieve one of their key sustainability goals – zero waste to landfill from manufacturing waste. Additionally, a review of broader industry-wide trends on the issues that are shaping EHS and sustainability management will provide further context and perspective.
