3rd annual Expo of the Western New York Sustainable Business Roundtable

As individuals, we must all do our part to lead sustainable lives. By doing that, we all help to contribute to the larger picture – the future of our planet. As citizens, it’s our duty. As businesses and corporations, it’s an obligation. By this point in time, businesses and corporations should be well ahead of where they are right now, if we want really want to affect change. After all, businesses have the ability to contribute in ways that we can hardly fathom.

To foster collaborations that enable our member businesses to act on their sustainability goals, maintain profitability, and promote a healthy community.

If one business starts changing its environmental stance, that leads to a ripple effect. Just think of the wholesale businesses that must adjust their policies. And then there’s the end consumer that purchases the greener products. But how can you make ti happen while keeping an eye on the bottom line? Come meet business and corporate leaders that have already been instrumental in forging ahead in the realm of environmental consciousness and implementation.
