Bethesda, Maryland -- At the Fall Convention & EXPO of the US Adhesive and Sealant Council Inc. (ASC), Nat Brooks, global programme manager for competitive intelligence at The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G), and Doug Walden, corporate sustainability programme manager at Owens Corning, will speak on sustainability in the sector.
These senior executives will tell the audience how sustainability plays a role at their companies, why sustainability matters and how adhesive and sealant companies can respond. The event will be held at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter in Covington, Kentucky, 3-5 Oct 2010.
In the convention's opening session on 4 Oct, Brooks will share how P&G approaches business strategy in an increasingly competitive marketplace and how firms can implement strategies that address sustainability. Meanwhile, Walden will close the convention 5 Oct with his presentation on the role buildings play in the energy footprint and the lessons that Owens Corning has learned while engaging the sustainable marketplace.
In keynote sessions, Anthony Watanabe, president and chief executive officer of Innovolve Group, will examine how to use sustainability as a tool to meet organisational challenges, and Peter Young, managing director and president of Young & Partners, will look at where the chemical industry is headed from a financial perspective, including an examination of the status of merger and acquisition activity and the future of consolidation.
"Listening to customers and responding to their needs are important aspects of a successful supply chain," said Jim Owens, ASC chairman and senior vice president, H.B. Fuller Co., in a 1 Sept ASC announcement. "In listening to our industry's customers, it is clear that sustainability is an on-going concern. Attending the ASC fall convention will provide access to executives from leading multinational corporations, thus creating a unique learning opportunity to better understand key drivers in today's marketplace."
