Sustainability is a major focus for corporate partners. 92% of the S&P 500 companies published a sustainability report in 2020.
If your corporate customers have not yet asked you to measure and report on your sustainable practices, they will. Large corporations are asking their suppliers to help them live their values, create a positive impact through their supply chain, and help them meet ambitious sustainability goals.
Join WBEC Metro NY and Greater DMV for a comprehensive program to understand what sustainability really means, what the value of sustainability is – particularly for Corporate Partners – and what you need to do to be a responsible supplier by incorporating sustainability into your business practice.
The program’s first session will begin in July 2022 and is a pre-requisite for the second and third sessions, extending into Q1 and Q2 of 2023.
During Module One, over the course of four interactive workshops, you will learn the basics of sustainability, your responsibility, and your potential impact. Facilitated by the Fehlig Group, you will hear from a valuable stakeholder and customer – our sponsor Bristol Meyers Squibb – on how your business fits into the value chain and how you can meet supplier expectations for their company and others like them. You will be given the building blocks for a sustainability roadmap that can be your differentiator!
The second Module, planned for q1 2023, sponsored and co-led by AstraZeneca, will be focused on building on the foundational knowledge obtained in Module 1, and will cover the execution of sustainability programs, including ESG platforms, and tools to support such programs. Module 3, planned for Q3 2023 will provide an advanced knowledge on the best-in-class sustainability program.
During each module, the Fehlig Group will host drop-in clinics where sustainability professionals will answer questions and give direct feedback on creating a comprehensive plan.
After Module One, you will walk away with an accessible, actionable roadmap for implementing and delivering on sustainable priorities.

Workshop 1 – What to Know | Wednesday, July 13 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Workshop 2 – What to Do | Wednesday, August 10 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm
