The Business & Environment Series brings a community of Minnesota business leaders together with experts from local and state government, academia, and nonprofit organizations to grow our understanding of environmental sustainability issues affecting businesses. Three sessions per year feature:

  • Expert presentations offering insight and resources on specific topics,
  • Business case studies highlighting real world examples, and
  • Small group discussions to help identify action items and encourage peer-to-peer learning. 

We work with our partners and members to identify the issues they care about and the environmental challenges they're grappling with. Our events have explored topics ranging from waste reduction and sustainable supply chains, to communicating about your sustainability initiatives and tools for goal-setting.

The Business & Environment Series is celebrating its 10th year in 2017 and will continue to move the conversation forward, helping companies to identify common goals, develop collaborations, find solutions, and be part of an ongoing dialogue about today’s pressing sustainability challenges. Join the conversation by attending!
