Sustainable Business Breakfast
Fri. Jun 4, 2021 8:00am - 10:00am EDT
In honor of World Environment Week, Pittsburgh Earth Day sponsored by Duquesne Light hosted the Sixth Annual Sustainable Business Breakfast at the Fairmont Pittsburgh Hotel. On Friday, June 4th from 8 AM – 10 AM, event attendees enjoyed a continental breakfast while hearing from a panel of local sustainability leaders and experts.
This year’s discussion was moderated by City of Pittsburgh Chief Resilience Officer, Grant Ervin and Chief Corporate Relations Officer for the Allegheny Conference, Bill Flanagan. Topics ranged from both large and small, how these leaders are transforming their companies and communities into shining examples of sustainability — and ways in which they hope to improve. This year’s panelists included Elizabeth Cook, General Manager, Advanced Grid Solutions, Duquesne Light Company; Justine Russo, Director of Sustainability and Business Intelligence, PITT OHIO; Greg Winks co-founder of Solbridge Energy Advisors; Dr. Robert Sroufe, Duquesne University, MBA-Sustainable Business Practices and Paulmbo-Donahue Graduate School of Business, and more.
