Presented by the Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and The Lancaster Chamber of Commerce & Industry
Gather with other regional business contacts, from organizations both large and small, to share environmental challenges and successes, learn more about environmental sustainability goals, identify needs, develop sustainable solutions that support the protection of local rivers and streams, and learn more about the Businesses for the Bay membership association. Engage with Pennsylvania business, non-profit, and government leaders, including Lancaster Chamber Members, and network with Businesses for the Bay Members, Sponsors, and Partners.
Keynote Speaker, Dante Parrini, Glatfelter Chairman & CEO, will lead us off with a discussion about the reasoning behind strong environmental and social responsibility plans and why Glatfelter is so strongly committed to being environmentally and socially responsible.
Philip Wenger, Lancaster County Conservancy CEO (and Founder of Isaac’s Famous Grilled Sandwiches), will speak and answer questions about protecting local lands and how and why the Conservancy integrates their work with businesses. He will also explain the importance of sustainable practices, from a business perspective, and how businesses and non-profits can work together.
We’ll also hear from a panel of Businesses for the Bay Members, including Kelly Gutshall (LandStudies President), Jim MacKenzie (Octoraro Native Plant Nursery President), and Robert Manbeck (SUEZ Pennsylvania Operations Public Affairs Manager).
The event will conclude with an interactive tour of the Lancaster County Conservancy’s Climbers Run Preserve.
