NBS is proud to support the upcoming Sustainability Boot Camp for Business Leaders
This one-day session held in Toronto on November 28, 2012 will outline why and how CEOs and CFOs are using sustainability to reduce risk while increasing revenues and productivity. Delivered by senior experts from Heenan Blaikie LLP, Global Reporting Initiative, Network for Business Sustainability and Leapfrog Sustainability Inc., instructors will share experience-based knowledge drawn from a range of practical company examples.
Hear from Barb Steele, NBS's Director of Strategic Partnerships, who will teach you about the best practices for employee engagement and embedding sustainability into corporate culture.
This program is designed for executives who are responsible for the financial or strategic health of their company and:
- Don't understand how eco-footprints are done and how they're used to drive costs down
- Feel exposed about what's on the horizon for carbon, disclosure and "green wash" regulations
- Want to know how sustainability can generate new revenue
- Wonder if they are leaving opportunity or risk on the table because they haven't had time to get the full pictureAt the end of the session, enjoy a brief networking and wine-tasting with Bill Redelmeier, CEO of global award-winning Southbrook Winery, who will share his perspective on sustainability in the wine-making industry.
