Global business issues today require companies to manage a myriad of topics ranging from worker rights and environmental management to innovation — and the growth of legislative and customer mandates is anticipated to increase. Awareness of emerging issues, compliance strategies, and transparency has become the currency needed to be sustainable.

This is the leading event for manufacturing professionals to discuss sustainability issues, share best practices, and network with like-minded individuals. Scheduled for May 02 - 03, 2017, at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan, the two-day event convenes practitioners from the automotive, heavy equipment, and technology industries representing OEMs, suppliers, and professional firms to examine organizational risk and the strategic integration needed to build sustainable foundations for the future.  

Forward-thinking leaders in the field of CR find value in the insights gained from other leading companies on how they are addressing similar issues. Showcasing successful strategies and the lessons learned along the way can offer practical solutions to the emerging challenges we face. 

Network with industry CR leaders at the 2017 AIAG CR Summit as we share insights and discuss global approaches for the building blocks of sustainability. If you manage issues related to environmental systems, compliance, operations, sales, finance, procurement, or the supply chain, this event is for you!
