  • New Speaker:  Bob Araujo, Manager of Sustainable Development and EHS Programs for Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation.  A dynamic speaker from a company in an industry you might not think would be intensely focused on sustainability, Bob will share his perspective on the sustainability actions that Sikorsky has taken.  He will share how the company has been able to leverage its sustainability strategy as a distinct competitive advantage, with visible results to the bottom line.
  • Lunch will be catered by Boloco serving their "inspired burritos."  Boloco was the first chain of restaurants in New England to become Certified Green™ by the Green Restaurant Association - most popular of its latest initiatives in sustainability are naturally-raised meats, potato starch utensils, and bamboo bowls.  We will be recycling and composting all waste from the lunch.
