THE GOAL: This one-day event will help individuals and leaders of business, government and educational institutions find the path which balances success and sustainability.
For 10 years, The Oregon Natural Step Network has helped guide some of the region’s most aggressive businesses along a path that preserves the environment and their bottom line.

Nike, TriMet, Sokol Blosser Winery, Hot Lips Pizza, The Collins Companies, Norm Thompson, Rejuvenation, SERA Architects, Neil Kelly, OMSI, Tualatin Valley Water District, Gerding Edlen Development Company and many others are on a path toward sustainability. This path also enhances their competitive edge for the future.

The size of your organization isn’t the issue. The size of your commitment is.

WHY NOW? Resource availability and tolerance for related environmental costs are changing. Risk exposure, product liability, workforce availability, public health and the stability of our economy all affect your organization’s success. This event will help you understand how sustainability and business goals can follow a common, responsible path.

ATTENDEES: Business decision makers, strategists, forecasters, planners – leaders who recognize a need to change while remaining competitive and being socially responsible. We anticipate 300-400 attendees.

FORMAT: An insightful group of thought leaders will weave facts and trends into scenarios, raising your understanding of alternatives which may position your organization to compete more successfully.
