Greif is a member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), which is a CEO-led global association of approximately 200 of the most environmentally responsible companies in the world. Member companies are committed to providing business leadership as a catalyst for change toward sustainable development. Members are drawn from more than 30 countries and 20 major industrial sectors.
As a member of the WBCSD, we are actively engaging our employees to move sustainability toward being an integral part of every business unit. We also signed on to the organization's Manifesto for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB).
Greif is proud to have hosted the first Midwest WBCSD conference in 2011 to discuss and share ideas and strategies about how to respond to some of the key environmental and business sustainability questions we face today and to share best practices. Due to its popularity, we also hosted the Midwest WBCSD conference in 2012 and 2013.
