HIGH POINT, N.C. -"Weaving Sustainability into the Corporate Fabric: Competing in the Global Marketplace," is the theme for this year's All-Industry Sustainability Summit slated for Dec. 1-2 at the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park in Asheville, N.C.
The Summit will bring together a cross section of decision makers and thought leaders from manufacturing, retail and supplier companies. For the third year, the Summit is sponsored by the American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA), in partnership with Cargill's BiOH polyols business unit. Companies do not need to be AHFA members to attend.
Kicking off the two-day Summit is Ernesta Ballard, senior vice president of corporate affairs for Weyerhaeuser. Ballard will discuss her company's internal and external sustainability reporting and describe how financial, social and environmental elements are woven into the company's annual sustainability report.
Registration for the two-day meeting is $325 for AHFA members and $500 for non-members and can be completed online at www.ahfa.us.
