How industry leaders are framing sustainability

Description

Hear from health care and business leaders why sustainability is important from a mission and business perspective, how to prioritize it among competing initiatives, and how sustainability is intimately connected to building community health, wealth, and resilience.

Each speaker will share:

  • How sustainability and community resilience teams work together and identify synergies.
  • How the organization demonstrates business value and mission alignment.
