Join us for a panel discussion with Industry leaders who will share what it means to be sustainable in manufacturing today!


A growing number of manufacturers are treating "sustainability" as an important objective in their strategy and operations to increase growth and global competitiveness.  But sustainable manufacturing is often too narrowly defined as simply manufacturing products in ways that minimize negative environmental impacts while conserving energy and natural resources.

By focusing on how international manufacturing companies in Georgia are implementing sustainability goals, such as the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations, this event will broaden the traditional definition of sustainability to include enhancing the well-being of employees and the communities in which companies operate.

The discussion moderated by Valerie Thomas will be followed by a Q&A session.
