Two weeks ago, I had the chance to speak at the North West Environmental Conference and Tradeshow in Portland, OR. It is a two day annual conference aiming on 4 different tracks:
- Regulation and Best Practices
- Advanced Topics, Raising the Bar
- Hot Topics Conversations
- Sustainable Business
The conference attracts some 600 to 800 attendees each year providing learning sessions within the 4 tracks described above. NWEC offers presentations by local, national, and international speakers from across the environmental industry providing professionals with the knowledge needed for high performance and creating a better environment for all.
Having studying and working with many businesses in the corporate sustainability area, I was please to be asked to speak at the conference sharing my knowledge and message with hundreds of people. Over the years we have seen an important shift from companies from aiming for compliance to reaching out for sustainable practices. This event has seen a lot turn over the years as its sustainable business track has been attracting many more individuals wanting to learn more about corporate sustainability initiatives.
