Hey guys!

Editor Kate Bachman summarized the takeaways from the Conference best in "Powerful Convergence of Sustainable Manufacturers Destined to Power Change." She writes,

Sustainable manufacturers are a powerful force, and therefore, are in a powerful position to affect change. Eco-responsible manufacturers feel the weight of their actions, know their own strengths, and are keenly aware that real sustainability materializes on the plant floor.

On May 18-19 in Naperville (Chicago), Ill., a diverse group of manufacturers came together to supercharge that power. They are food ingredients processors, furniture makers, personal care products manufacturers, metals industrialists, packaging makers, ecofriendly cleaners and chemicals formulators, appliance makers, structural products manufacturers, and many others. They shared ideas, swapped success stories, networked, and co-strategized about how to put sustainability to work in plants and operations.

If you missed it, here is a glimpse of what you would have heard.
