GMA-FMI Sustainability Summit to Go Global

As companies continue to grow globally, so does the reach of our sustainability programs. Which is why in 2013, GMA and The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) have elevated the international scope of the premier food, beverage and CPG industry sustainability event to create the Global Sustainability Summit.

The 2013 Global Summit, on August 16 -18, 2013 in Seattle, WA, will give companies the tools, connections and proactive solutions to take their sustainability programs to the next level. From domestic agriculture to developing markets, the Global Summit will bring together leading experts to address the topics companies around the globe are facing today and in the future.

The Global Sustainability Summit is designed to help companies with all levels of awareness, expertise and global reach incorporate sustainability into every aspect of their business model.

Keynote sessions will feature some of the world’s leading thinkers and change agents focused on the most pressing issues in the industry – including incorporating sustainable solutions from the ground up, reducing waste in the supply chain and creating new and innovative incentives for consumers in the future.
