Clean Water is Good For Business

27
Mar.
Time: 5:30pm to 7:30pm Central Time

You know how important clean water is to your business and the economy. But some groups are trying to undermine water quality in the Mississippi River Valley. That’s why it’s so important that businesses stand together for clean water protections.

Join a candid conversation between Environmental Entrepreneurs (E2), the American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) and Chicago area business leaders on what clean water means for business, the challenges the Midwest is facing keeping its water supply clean, and an examination of the role public policy plays in protecting the Mississippi River and keeping local economies thriving.

  • 5:15 pm Registration Opens
  • 5:30 pm Reception
  • 6:00 pm Welcome – ASBC & E2
  • 6:05 pm Business Remarks
