Why does Minnesota have so many companies interested in sustainability? Does Minnesota have a competitive advantage in corporate sustainability? Why? Will Minnesota continue to be a leader in corporate sustainability or are we losing our edge? A panel of corporate sustainability professionals will address these questions and more at WEN MN’s September corporate sustainability event.

Minnesota has unique advantages that make it a strong leader in corporate sustainability including a relatively large density of fortune 500 companies and progressive policies. Through corporate policies, innovative technologies or influential marketing campaigns, corporations have a huge influence over what happens to the environment in Minnesota as well as globally.

Come listen, learn and explore Minnesota’s sustainability advantage with WEN on September 23 from 6-8pm.

Panel includes:

Ellen Gibson – Senior Director, Projects & Programs at Environmental Initiative
Erin L. Heitkamp – Global Sustainability Practice Leader at Wenck Associates, Inc.
Kandace Olsen – Vice President, Communications and Human Resources at Great River Energy
Amy Skoczlas Cole – Principal at S3 Strategies LLC
