PepsiCo, Owens-Illinois, Dow Chemical to Share Best Practices for Creating a Sustainable Organization

Sept. 16, 2009
The Sustainability Exchange 2009 will be held in November

AMR Research recently announced the agenda for its upcoming Sustainability Exchange 2009 event, being held on November 11, 2009 in Boston, Mass. With the theme "From Awareness to Execution: Sustainability in the Global Supply Chain," attendees will learn how sustainability efforts can translate into operational cost savings -- and how they can begin executing on these strategies immediately.

The event includes presentations from some of the top sustainability and supply chain executives today, including:

  • John Phillips, vice president of supply chain, PepsiCo
  • Henry Ward, global supply chain director, sustainability, Dow Chemical
  • Jay Scripner, vice president of sustainability, Owens-Illinois
  • Kevin Dooley, professor of supply chain, Arizona State University and a Walmart green labeling committee member

"As organizations look for ways to make environmental sustainability strategies work, it is becoming increasingly evident that turning to their supply chain operations to manage the costs of energy, emissions, and waste in sourcing, manufacturing, and logistics is the answer," said Stephen Stokes, vice president of sustainability and green technologies at AMR Research.
