“REACH Compliance: What Now?” Doing Business in the EU, MN Trade Office, February 3, 2010
I was one of the facilitators at the un-conference Minnesota 2010 Green Innovations in Business Solutions Lab, a group of academic, industry and NGO members looking for new ways to advance sustainability practice in business. EDF, NET Impact and GreenBiz co-sponsor “Solutions Labs” around the country along with local businesses (Target, Best Buy and others in MN). You can also see wikis from other Solution Labs for the last couple of years. While the meeting was good for networking and there was some enthusiasm over actions that could be initiated, it wasn’t clear that anything is being done.
