Sustainable Business Breakfast

Fri. Jun 4, 2021 9:00am - 11:00am EDT
It's easy to say we are going to commit to being a sustainable business, but what does it take to put this commitment into action? This year, Pittsburgh's top leaders in corporate and community sustainability will discuss what it takes to implement sustainable practices and how to connect to global sustainability goals. Local business leaders will talk about ways, both large and small, that they are transforming their companies and communities into shining examples of sustainability — and ways in which they hope to improve.
The 2021 Sustainability Business Breakfast will take place during #WorldEnvironmentalWeek at the Fairmont Pittsburgh Downtown and will feature a panel of innovators discussing the current climate of green industries in Pittsburgh. Space is limited so book your ticket now!
