Join the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality for the second annual Michigan Sustainability Conference (MISCON)!

MISCON has been designed to promote meaningful engagement with business professionals around the topic of sustainability.

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 will 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 will provide 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.

Businesses and their sustainability professionals, environmental health and safety coordinators, environmental engineers and staff, marketing and communications staff, and anyone interested in learning how to advance and communicate their organization’s sustainability efforts should attend.

  • Meet and network with Michigan’s business leaders who are successfully implementing sustainability practices.
  • Learn how to engage your employees, upper management, customers, and shareholders as part of your sustainability strategy.
  • Gain insight to help your business save money and protect the environment for future generations.

This Conference will provide 5 CEHs/PDHs for Professional Engineers.
