Signature Event: Sustainability through reinvention

Apr 16, 2018, 7:00pm - 8:45pm



Our 2018 Environmental Professionals Network Signature Event will explore the concept of sustainable supply chains through the lens of reinvention. Dr. Nadya Zhexembayeva, Chief Reinvention Officer at WE EXIST Reinvention Agency, will introduce us to the need for “reinvention” to achieve an exceptionally sustainable supply chain. Then sustainability and supply chain professionals from three iconic companies (Patagonia, Owens Corning, and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams) will share how they are working to embed sustainability into their supply chains. Dr. Zhexembayeva will facilitate a deeper conversation with our panelists and audience participants about how to build reinvention and sustainability into our social, economic and environmental systems.
