Join us for an exciting Greater New York City chapter event, featuring Al Iannuzzi, PhD, Senior Director of Environment, Health, Safety & Sustainability at Johnson & Johnson.
The world is changing at a rapid pace. One of the key trends we see is the growing middle class in developing nations like India and China, where consumers want products such as cars, smart phones and appliances that are common to us in the West. The question we need to ask is: where will all the resources come from to fulfill this demand? In order to thrive and survive in this new future, companies will have to do things differently. The world needs greener products that have much lower environmental impacts. This talk examines how leading companies are making and marketing greener products and identifies the forces shaping the ways in which companies will “go green” over the next decade.
