Contact Laura Shumow for more information.
The topics for the Environmental and Sustainability Initiatives Series were selected based on high priority areas within the food industry and are organized similar to Wal-Mart's recently announced Sustainability Index Assessment Areas. This program is meant to benefit companies without an understanding of their carbon footprint, as well as those who have already implemented a program after obtaining a baseline of their carbon emissions. The series explores a variety of environmental initiatives for the confectionery industry that are vital to increasing and improving sustainability throughout the supply chain including: Energy & Climate, Material Efficiency in Confectionery Manufacturing, Material Efficiency in the Supply Chain, Natural Resources, and People & Community.
