MCC Co-Sponsored events:

The Sustainability Summit emphasis is on identifying innovative diverse small businesses and engaging industry leaders and stakeholders who support practical green initiatives and strategic partnering. Interested groups will be industry leaders, leaders in corporate America, government officials and multicultural businesses of all sizes. Discussions will also focus upon sharing successes and ideas as an incentive to create green partnerships in order to become and remain viable in the 21st century. What differentiates this Summit from others is its laser focus on exploring and resolving the sustainability concerns of both its purchasing membership and large multi-ethnic supplier base. Further, the Summit will showcase commercial sector match-making with green vendors. Numerous panel sessions are scheduled to feature prominent speakers in sustainability at varying levels that will directly address your operations and share their experiences. The Summit will also highlight stateside innovation of products and services from businesses that need access to clean tech funding through its Innovation Arena. The Summit will promote the next generation of sustainable practices and alternative energy technologies from certified businesses. More importantly, this Summit is an invitation and challenge to all enterprises for creating sustainable partnerships for supply chains and stimulating US economic growth.
