DETAILS

Sustainability is a hot topic among corporations and has become an important part of how industry is planning for both the present and the future. Many companies are looking to implement sustainability as a general business practice, but aren't sure where to begin, while other have already started the process and are looking for assistance and/or direction as they execute this new strategy.

On November 1, 2022, the Indiana Manufacturers Association will host The Indiana Sustainability Summit for Manufacturers, which will convene a diverse group of leaders and decision-makers from across several business sectors. Speakers and panelists will share benchmarking strategies, best practices and trends in the sustainability arena.

Agenda topics include:

  • The Shift Towards Renewable Power and Renewable Energy Markets

  • Hydrogen, Gas, Low Carbon and the Energy Future  

  • Natural Gas Market Intel

  • Sustainability and the State of the Economy

  • Why the Circular Economy is Important to Manufacturers 

  • How the SEC’s Proposed Climate-Related Disclosures Are Expected to Impact Indiana Manufacturers
