SAVE THE DATE: Chamber Hosts Panel on Successful ESG Planning, Dec. 7

As the concluding part of the 2022 Sustainability Summit, the MI Chamber will host a virtual event Wednesday, Dec. 7, where attendees can hear from a panel of experts on how businesses can successfully assess, develop and implement a Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) plan that works for their business. Studies show that companies with a competitive ESG plan outperform companies that either don’t have a plan or maybe have one, but don’t know how to best implement into their performance metrics.  

A panel discussion, moderated by the MI Chamber’s director of environmental and energy affairs, Mike Alaimo, will include Ann Erhardt, senior consultant at Public Sector Consultants, Mary Maas, director of partnerships at the Green Business Bureau and Brian Pageau, president at Foresight Management.  

The panel will offer resources to members interested in developing a company ESG plan. This ESG clinic will help answer some fundamental questions about what an ESG plan could look like to small and medium-sized businesses just getting started, and even large businesses that may already have an ESG plan and are looking for additional or better execution or design ideas.  

Some additional topics we’ll explore:  

  • Is there a need for ESG standards? 
  • Is the ESG movement about competitive advantage, or added cost? 
  • How to set ESG goals that are right for your business 
  • How to identify ESG solutions through innovation and collaboration
