B-W Sustainability Symposium

Sustainable Innovation: Products, Processes, Services -- A Sustainability Symposium at Baldwin-Wallace College

This event will consider the opportunities and challenges of sustainable innovation for leading corporations in the twenty-first century. We begin with the premise that sustainable innovation will be essential for corporate success, social well-being, and long-term survival of the planet in a century that will face unprecedented global challenges. This new imperative will be driven by ecological challenges such as climate change, human population growth, natural resource depletion, and growing threats to natural habitats and ecosystems around the globe. Private sector companies will need to lead the way toward an economic future shaped by disruptive innovation, new products and services, and business models and practices that drive down ecological footprints both within the manufacturing process and for consumers and end users.

This three-day event, November 7-9, 2011, follows on the heels of B-W's first two Sustainability Symposia in October 2009 (500 attendees) and March 2010 (800 attendees) that have attracted world and nationally renowned speakers and presenters.

All events listed are free and open to the public.

Agenda, registration and more information.
