VAGTC Presents: Global Trade Driving Sustainable Business Practices

Sustainability is a practice that stretches across many facets of daily life, in the community, in business and globally. Establishing sustainable business practices encourage business to cut costs and increase their bottom line. Businesses, who have not implemented concrete sustainability measures, may soon experience difficulties doing business globally (outside the United States). Specific sustainable business practices are being adopted by global markets and are becoming a critical component of newly negotiated free trade agreements around the world, such as the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the U.S. and Europe. Join us as we discuss business practices, using real world examples from West Michigan businesses leading the charge in sustainable business to support export to global markets.
