The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council brings businesses from around the state together to learn from each other. The first conference was held in December of 2008, and has become an annual event. The conference has been held in Madison, Milwaukee, Neenah, Dodgeville, Oshkosh and Onalaska.
The conference is coordinated by students from Tom Eggert’s class at UW Madison and features business practitioners sharing their strategies, their tools, and their experiences.
The conference has adopted a Sustainable Events policy and seeks to minimize the environmental footprint of the event. Stainless steel water bottles are provided in place of plastic water bottles, carbon offsets are purchased to offset the carbon footprint and vegetarian food is always served to demonstrate the ease of giving up meat for one meal a week.
In addition, a book is chosen by the student team each year to help shape the sustainable business discussion over the course of the next year.
