By addressing the triple bottom line - environmental, economic, and social issues - your business can achieve cost savings and potential growth, and improve your brand and image to customers. MISCON was designed to help forward-thinking business professionals to develop and strengthen the in-house sustainability practices and communication strategies needed to engage customers, shareholders, suppliers, management, and others. It provided an opportunity to engage in peer-to-peer ideas through thought provoking discussions that will identify essential elements for success and inspire ongoing efforts to improve sustainability at your business.
