Detroit’s Moment: Accelerating the Sustainable Business Revolution
The newly formed Sustainable Business Network (SBN) of Detroit mobilizes businesses and organizations of all sizes and galvanizes bold action to make Southeast Michigan a global leader in sustainability. The group’s goal is to create a sustainable business ecosystem through a network serving as a hub for idea sharing, programming, content, mentoring, and other activities to advance and accelerate the systemic adoption of sustainable business practices.
We invite you to join our inaugural event, where Andrew Hoffman, Holcim (US) Professor of Sustainable Business enterprise at the University of Michigan, will talk about the importance of sustainability to business now and how collaboration and creativity can accelerate the pace of sustainable change. Following his remarks, Andy will moderate a panel of recognized leaders in sustainable business: Bob Holycross, vice president, sustainability, environmental and safety engineering, Ford Motor Co.; Amy Peterson, co-founder and CEO, Rebel Nell; and Carla Walker-Miller, founder and CEO, Walker-Miller Energy Services.
