How Vital is Corporate Environmental Responsibility?

  • THE ROBERT H. JACKSON CENTER 305 East 4th Street Jamestown, NY, 14701 United States


Please join the Robert H Jackson Center (RHJC) as we explore business opportunities and risks inherent in environmental sustainability.

The program will begin with reflections on the importance of the environment to Jackson’s formative years and how it shaped his perspective that the preservation of the environment relies on a commitment from the business community and its citizens

A panel discussion will follow.  The panel includes Laurie Counsel, Environmental Relations Director at Cummins International and Allison Robinson, Director of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) Environmental Initiatives, who will discuss their respective entity’s work to strengthen their fiscal health and the well-being of their communities through mitigating environmental impacts. To round out the picture, an attorney with experience in both prosecuting and defending corporations, will address current issues in health, safety, and environmental law.

Julia Craighill, president of Ensign Consulting, Jackson Center board member and Jackson’s granddaughter, will provide the opening reflections and moderate the panel.

THIS PROGRAM IS PART OF THE GREENUP JAMESTOWN INITIATIVE, a series of events leading up to Earth Day.
