It is less than a week before the GMA Executive Conference, the annual gathering of the elite in the food & beverage industry - looking forward to a great event. Yesterday, GMA hosted a call with three participants of the Executive Conference sustainability session, "Practical Industry Strategies for a Sustainable Future": Greg Page, Chairman & CEO of Cargill, Dave Dillon, Chairman & CEO of Kroger, and Eric Spiegel, President & CEO of Siemens Corporation. Although intended to be primarily a preparation/logistics session, the conversation between these three industry leaders evolved into a great discussion on sustainability - just a precursor to the event on Monday!
My next posts will highlight the views on sustainability of each of these companies/CEOs, plus that of the other panelist for the session, CH2M Hill CEO Lee McIntire.
Kicking things off, let's take a look at a video on sustainability from Eric Spiegel of Siemens:
