Cannon Communications will hold its second conference for sustainable manufacturing, Green Manufacturing: Business Strategies for Sustainability on September 22 – 25 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill.
The conference will emphasize concepts such as lean and green, corporate responsibility, waste to profit, design for environment, zero waste and environmental sustainability through sessions and workshops. Pamela Gordon, president of Technology Forecasters Inc. and author of “Lean and Green: Profit for Your Workplace and the Environment,” will chair the conference for the first two days.
“The measure of success of any green manufacturing conference is the extent to which the participants successfully reduce their products and company’s environmental footprints upon their workplaces,” says Gordon. She notes that the conference will make participants “change agents” by giving them tools to substantially reduce impact in financially and competitively advantageous ways.
