S-Series: Creating a Sustainable Future for Manufacturing

As ESG — environmental, social and governance — issues become more of a concern for manufacturers, the importance of sustainable processes and pursuit of carbon-neutral practices will become more prominent.

Expectations for reporting on diversity, equity, and inclusion metrics in manufacturing will likely continue to rise. To attract talent and appeal to workforce expectations, most manufacturers are making ESG efforts more visible. Depending on a manufacturer’s end markets, environmental accountability is increasingly a focus. To develop and deliver against net-zero or carbon-neutral goals, more organizations are dedicating or redesigning sustainability roles and initiatives and quantifying efforts and results around energy consumption.

Our presenters will share how they are responding proactively to the fast-evolving ESG landscape to stay ahead of the change and create competitive advantage.

Presenters: Each webinar will have 3 presenters speaking for 15 mins each plus Q&A.
