Preparing sustainability leaders and their companies for the new risks and realities of the new economy.

Sustainability Roundtables provide a local forum for global companies to participate in facilitated conversations on important strategic business issues in sustainability and corporate social responsibility (CSR). Member leaders engage the full spectrum of sustainability and CSR topics, frequently moving the conversation beyond energy and environmental sustainability to address the issues of the new economy:

  • new realities of resource scarcity,
  • opportunities in product development,
  • rise of the circular economy,
  • supply chain sustainability,
  • employee engagement,
  • transparency and communications.

Thoughts from attendees:



Zero-waste to landfill discussions sparked internal discussions.  It prompted to ask:  What is the gap? What would it take to become zero waste next year? and take action.

The Milwaukee Sustainability Roundtable fills a void in the upper Midwest in terms of sustainability learning and stretching.

The session helped me understand how to add specific benefit to internal networks by adding a sustainability lens to their discussions and speaking the language of business (finance).

The discussion on Talent Sustainability and HR brought sustainability to a whole new level.

We, (Sustainability) leaders, should be mining our departments for opportunities to add the sustainability lens in choosing the right business equipment to purchase and what will be its impact.

Regarding the preparation packets sent out prior to each meeting – Love all the readings.  I’ve put them all in a binder and our office uses it as an ongoing resource.

(The software that was shared as a resource by one of our members) could eliminate the need for various spreadsheets and free up my time to pursue projects vs. chase data. Value to me and my organization? approximately 200 hrs or $10,000.

I was very intrigued by the discussions and the level of speakers they had at the first Sustainability Round Table I attended. I never saw a green roof before and from what I learned from Rockwell Automation I thought there is definitely an ROI, there just needs to be more research when presenting the project. I would definitely like to attend another meeting.

Side discussion on supplier engagement provided some opportunities and ideas to expand our efforts.

As this was my first session, I came with an open mind and was pleased with the speaker, attendees and open forum for the sharing of ideas and best practices. I’ve already reviewed this with our people and have asked them to actively engage with this group going forward.
