Net Positive for Industry and Manufacturers
Pre-Conference Workshop: NET POSITIVE FOR MANUFACTURERS AND INDUSTRY (1.5 CEUs)
Claire Castleman of Eaton, Jeff Zeman of Kohler, and Liz Schillo of Levis
October 2, 2017 1:00PM - 2:30 PM at the Sheraton Harborside Hotel, Portsmouth, NH.
Workshop Description: This workshop will explore how companies are already pursuing Net Positive sustainability. We will look at product-level case studies and organizational goals and Net Positive pursuit. We will hear from professionals in these companies, about how and why they are doing this work, and with what effect. Examples will be drawn from participants in the Net Positive Project and in the SHINE program. We will also explore the role of Handprinting in ILFI's Living Product Challenge, and look at case studies of companies who are developing and delivering the next generation of regenerative products that "give more than they take" on a full spectrum of sustainability issues.
