PDX Sustainability Gathering: The Intersection of Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability

Thursday, 19 July 2018
5:30-8:30pm PT

The strive for a more sustainable global economy involves everyone - public and private companies, government and regulatory agencies, the financial markets, customers and local citizens, as well as a range of global and local non-profits.

With such a wide spectrum of organizations often working on their own issues, it's easy to miss opportunities for collaboration across sectors to share innovative ideas and lessons learned.

With this in mind, join us to hear from Nasdaq, Intel and Microsoft as they share their evolution in corporate responsibility and how they are developing strategic initiatives and partnerships to further our collective efforts toward sustainability. In this session, you will:

  • Learn of the predominate approaches companies take to measure, manage & report on their sustainability performance
  • Find out how to build the strategic business case for greater ESG disclosure
  • Discover how wide and deep CR/sustainability runs through modern, multi-national corporations
  • Understand how collaborations & partnerships benefit the overall sustainability field

This event is free for invited guests. If invitees would like to bring additional guests or company colleagues, please contact us. There will be a cash bar and food vendors available for this event. Parking information will be sent to confirmed registrations.

Who Should Attend
This session is open to all interested Portland business, government and non-profit leaders who are working on sustainability issues. We are all interconnected through the financial markets, supply chains and our communities and should use this conversation to better understand our mutual interests.
