Each year at its annual member meeting, WEC's member companies identify
several important topics where peer-to-peer discussion can advance
mutual learning and value creation. This year’s topics included the UN
Sustainable Development Goals, sustainability rankings, employee
sustainability engagement, and preparing for the COP21 climate meetings
in Paris. Read the full list of meeting takeaways here.
WEC and its partners are pleased to report on the closing ceremony of its successful Pathways to Cleaner Production in the Americas project in conjunction with INTEC University in the Dominican Republic. Summed up best by a participating engineering student, "thanks to the project I combined my knowledge of industrial engineering with practical cleaner production, leading to performance improvements in materials and workflow management. I also participated in a university exchange at TEC de Costa Rica. I learned something new each week, valued the benefit cleaner production can assert its importance in business today." Further info on the project and ceremony can be found here.
