“The path to sustainability is a new venture for many vehicle suppliers,” commented John Chalifoux, chief sustainability officer for MEMA, The Vehicle Suppliers Association. “Hearing first-hand accounts from executive peers will provide beneficial information that can help attendees as they build their own sustainability and ESG roadmaps.”

“Sustainability: Competing in Today’s Environment” is a full-day conference co-hosted by the MEMA Center for Sustainability and MEMA Government Affairs. The event will bring together executive leaders, customers, sustainability professionals and government experts to discuss the burning platforms in sustainability and ESG. Topics will include forced-labor prevention; funding opportunities available through the federal government; customer requirements and reporting; and executive and customer perspectives. 

Executives and professionals from all MEMA member companies – automotive and commercial vehicle, original equipment and aftermarket – who manage aspects of sustainability and ESG within their organizations are invited to attend the event. The program is ideal for small to middle-market companies, but companies of all sizes will gain insight from the program, MEMA says.

The event is scheduled for Aug. 15 at the Michigan State University Management Education Center in Troy, Michigan.

MEMA members and non-members are invited to attend. Discounted pricing is available for multiple attendees from the same MEMA member company.
