This session, we will be exploring the challenges that firms face after they have developed the vision, created the strategy, and now need to develop support from within the business to carry out the mission.
A challenge that many would say is one of the greatest firms face, particularly given the fact that to change the product or process of the firm it requires a change of people, and to help us get an insider perspective on this topic we have invited Ms. Erin Meezan, Vice President of Sustainability of Interface.
As Vice President of Sustainability for Interface, Erin ensures that Interface’s aggressive Mission Zero goals are met. She leads a team that provides technical assistance and support to the company’s global business units to achieve the company’s aggressive sustainability vision. She helps the company address sustainability at all levels, including in operations and management, with employees and customers, and in policy forums. Erin also has an external role working with NGOs as an advisor on Boards and steering committees to develop standards and market guidance. She oversees Interface’s external partnerships with environmental stakeholders and is a frequent lecturer on sustainable business to senior management teams, universities and the growing green consumer sector.
As with our previous workshops, we will be using case studies and scenarios to provide practical lessons for how to move strategically on these issues.
